More Than A Wall, Book Presentation


Author/Presenter: David Bacon Independent journalist and photographer.

Join a presentation of a book of photographs by David Bacon and oral histories created during 30 years of covering the people and social movements of the Mexico/U.S. border. A book detailed by a complex, richly textured documentation of a world in newspaper headlines daily, but whose reality, as it’s lived by border residents, is virtually invisible.


More Than A Wall features 440 pages of 354 duotone black-and-white photographs, a dozen oral histories, incisive journalism and analysis by David Bacon, Don Bartletti, Luis Escala, Guillermo Alonso and Alberto del Castillo. It is completely bilingual in English and Spanish and published by El Colegio de la Frontera Norte with support from the UCLA Institute for Labor Research and Education and the Center for Mexican Studies, the Werner Kohlstamm Family Fund, and the Green Library at Stanford University
