Harvest of Dignity

Before it became the consumers' holiday, what we now call Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving found Americans still aglow with appreciation for their blessings. On that day in 1960, esteemed journalist Edward R. Murrow premiered his groundbreaking documentary, Harvest of Shame, inviting an unprecedented look at the workers behind all the feasting. In labor camps and fields along the East Coast, the Guilford County-born Murrow investigated migratory farmworker issues - including pay, housing and education. His work achieved its goal, revealing several shortcomings in our agricultural system that led to new legislation. What has changed for farmworkers since 1960? And what hasn't? Find out as Harvest of Dignity, exploring farmworker living conditions in eastern North Carolina's Greene, Pitt, Lenoir and Northampton Counties, as well as the mountain region. North Carolina's economy still relies on more than 180,000 migrant and seasonal workers to pick fruits and vegetables by hand and to process poultry. With ongoing debates over immigration policies and growing public concerns about food safety, Harvest of Dignity examines the issues raised half a century ago. Hear farmworker families share their struggles. Absorb the harsh reality of housing and working conditions described by farmworkers, attorneys, healthworkers, ministers and advocates. See how a student leadership program, called Levante, offers hope to farmworker children. And visit an Elizabeth City camp featured in Harvest of Shame that still stands. Produced by Donna Campbell of Emmy Award-winning Minnow Media, Harvest of Dignity received funding from Oxfam America, The North Carolina Arts Council, and Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
