Hart Perry (Director of Photography, Harlan County USA), has documented the lives of Mexican-American migrant farm workers in Raymondville, Texas, 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.
