Duke Engage-Tucson


duke engage tucsonOn the Migrant Trail: Stories from the U.S.-Mexico Border

The exhibit documents the experiences of migrants, as seen through the eyes of DukeEngage Tucson participants. This collection depicts the harsh desert and landmarks immigrants encounter in journeying from Mexico to southern Arizona, but also presents the more personal, human elements of the experience--the found objects, the water jugs set out by humanitarian organizations, the desert shrine to Josselina, a young girl who lost her life on the trail.  

This gallery, we hope, will serve as an awakening to the flawed political system that neglects such suffering, but also, a testament to the strength and efforts on both sides of the border.
