Valley of Tears

Valley Of Tears

Valley of Tears is a complex story of the long journey of individuals
who endure hardship in order to make a better future for their families.
Hart Perry (Director of Photography - "Harlan County, USA"), has
documented the lives of Mexican-American migrant farm workers in
Raymondville, TX since 1979 when the onion workers' strike broke out.
What followed was a fight not only for higher pay but also for equal rights
and representation. For 24 years, the county's Mexican-American residents
were determined to fight for what is right.
