See larger Cecile Wang, 70, tries her hand at lifting a tomato bucket during the Coalition of Immokalee Workers' Semi-centennial Commemoration of 'Harvest of Shame' at its community center on Friday. Partly filmed in Immokalee, the 1960 documentary was Edward R. Murrow's legendary final broadcast for CBS and exposed the desperate plight of farmworkers. More than 75 people turned out for the open house portion of the event. It included an informal walk-through of the Community Center as well a chance to view the Florida Modern-day Slavery Museum, which is a trucked-in exhibit recently set up on the National Mall and at the U.S. State Department for the release of its 2010 Trafficking in Persons Report.
