East End Libraries Present: Long Island Migrant Labor Camps: Dust for Blood

April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Long Island Migrant Labor Camps:  Dust for Blood is the riveting true account of the migrant labor camps in Suffolk County from their inception during World War II, through their heyday in 1960, and culminating with their steady decline towards the end of the 20th century. The book’s author, Mark Torres, will talk about the dark history of the camps including the human suffering of the camps’ inhabitants; the cause and effect of the camps; and the factors which led to their eventual decline.  Mr. Torres will also cover the heroic efforts of those who were critics of the camps and fought to improve the lives of migrant workers on the eastern end of Long Island during this time period.
