Haitian Migrant Farmworkers on the Eastern Shore: A Historical Photo Document
Photos by Phil Decker

Capture a rare glimpse into the lives of Haitian migrant farmworkers through the compelling photographs and field notes of documentary photographer Phil Decker, who worked in the mid-1980s as an outreach worker for migrant farmworkers in Salisbury. This exhibit and archive provides the Nabb Center with a significant historical document on the origin of the Eastern Shore's Haitian community, many of whom fled political and economic upheaval in Haiti in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Coming to the U.S., they picked vegetables in the fields of the Eastern Shore. Decker’s photos depict a farmworker crew's life in Florida, on the road, in the fields, in the labor camp, and in town.
