Last Harvest: The Yemenis of the San Joaquin Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sun, Aug 3, 2014 -- 8:30 PM

This program explores the lives and times of Muslim immigrants from Yemen who settled in California's San Joaquin Valley. Yemeni migrant workers started coming to the US in the post-1965 era when the new immigration law opened the gates to non-Europeans. While most settled in the Detroit area, a small band of villagers from the mountainous Ibb region found work in the San Joaquin Valley where they tended the vineyards that produce a yearly bounty of internationally renowned table grapes. At the peak of the sojourn migration, some 5000 Yemenis were employed in the fields. Today only several hundred remain. This is their story.
