Drawing from contemporary accounts and ethnographic research of the migrant workers in our fields today, as well as accounts of injustice through history from Steinbeck, Agee, and others, Watermelon Season is an exploration of the displaced, hard-working people toiling in America’s fruit and vegetable fields. Engaging urgent questions surrounding immigration law and policy, Watermelon Season depicts a troubling and enduring tendency to devalue the very workers upon whom we depend.
