States of Incarceration UMiami Exhibition Opening and Reception: Mass Story Lab
The Krome Processing Center opened in 1980 to house the more than 100,000 migrants who arrived in the U.S from Haiti and Cuba. The Center now detains immigrants from over 30 countries. In this Mass Story Lab, we hear the stories of people detained at Krome over the last 35 years and others impacted by incarceration in South Florida. How does the experience of detention impact a sense of community and belonging in Miami? In thepresent political moment, what can we all do to protect those seeking sanctuary in the U.S? Hosted in conjunction with "States of Incarceration: A National Dialogue on Local Histories".
