This Independent Study examines the racial images that existed in Mexican contract labor from 1942-1964, or the bracero program. Specifically, it focuses on perceptions of braceros from the Mexican government, agribusiness employers, American unions and Mexican civil rights groups, while lastly analyzing braceros' own self-perceived identity.
