California State University, Bakersfield curated the exhibit, “Fact or Fiction: Looking at the Migrant Labor Experience in 1930s California.” It’s on display now through May 20 in the university’s Walter Stiern Library, and it features photographs by Dorothea Lange that reveal the diversity of migrant laborers in the San Joaquin Valley. To learn more, Valley Edition host Kathleen Schock spoke to the Stiern Library’s archives and marketing assistant Donato Cruz and outreach and user engagement librarian Kristen Gallant.
