A U-M Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium event.

A display of Rachel Woolf’s documentary photography capturing Lourdes Salazar Bautista and her family’s experience of deportation. Woolf, 2018 winner of the Emerging Lens competition, captures moments in the days before Bautista’s deportation hearing in Detroit and the family’s forced return to Toluca, Mexico, revealing in intimate detail the impact of deportation on real families. Stamps professor Hannah Smotrich designed the exhibit and collaborated with Ford School faculty Ann Lin and Fabiana Silva to situate the photographs in a policy, political, and historical context. Exhibit will be on display through January 31.
