This 1960 television documentary was presented on CBS by broadcast journalist, Edward R. Murrow. It shows the plight of American migrant agricultural workers.
It was Murrow’s final documentary for the network. He left CBS at the end of January 1961 at John F. Kennedy’s request to become the head of the United States Information Agency.
This was an investigative report intended ”to shock Americans into action”. It was the “first time million of Americans were given a close look at what it means to live in poverty” via their televisions.
