October 21 @ 8:00 AM - November 4 @ 5:00 PM

photos and text Immigrant Journeys from South of the BorderAs our nation debates when and why people from other countries should be allowed to come to the United States, this exhibition invites you to meet eight immigrants whose journeys began in Columbia, Mexico, Uruguay and Honduras, who are living in Wisconsin today. Their stories, told in their own words, together with their photographic portraits, offer a different entry point into the national conversation about immigration. No matter where your life’s journey began, we invite you to enjoy these stories and our shared humanity.

“Immigrant Journeys from South of the Border ¡Mi travesía hasta Wisconsin!” is a project of the Wisconsin Humanities Council produced in partnership with Centro Hispano of Dane County with stories by Bill Berry and photographs by Gary Porter.

The UWM Libraries and the Roberto Hernández Center are sponsors of the touring exhibition’s presentation at the UWM Golda Meir Library.
