“Alone Together” Virtual Lecture – “Long Island Migrant Labor Camps: Dust for Blood”

Saturday, March 27 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sat., March 27th at 5pm


Author Mark Torres’ compelling presentation coincides with the March 22nd publication of his book, “Long Island Migrant Labor Camps: Dust for Blood” (The History Press), a riveting, comprehensive, and never-before-told true story about the migrant labor camps in Suffolk County—from their inception during World War II, through their heyday in 1960, and culminating with their steady decline towards the end of the 20th century. Torres will describe this dark history including the human suffering of the camps’ inhabitants; the cause and effect of these camps; and the factors which led to their eventual decline.


Mark Torres, a labor and employment attorney as well as novelist, has a law degree from Fordham University School of Law and a bachelor’s degree in history from New York University.
