The event will include conversations with the photographer, scholars, activists, and advocates for perspectives on deportation’s multifaceted impacts on Long Island, its residents, and beyond.
The panel will be moderated by Lori Flores, Associate Professor of History and author of Grounds for Dreaming: Mexican Americans, Mexican immigrants, and the California Farmworker Movement.

This photo exhibit will be a stop on the campus-wide Art Crawl on Thursday, October 6, and will be on display until November 30 in the Central Reading Room of the Melville Library. Reception follows panel discussion.
