The Bracero History Archive collects and makes available oral histories, documents, and artifacts pertaining to the Bracero program, a guest worker initiative that spanned the years 1942-1964. During that time, millions of Mexican agricultural workers crossed the border under the program. Tutorials are available on how to navigate this site, conduct oral histories, and how to use Omeka to curate images and create posters.
