Building on an oral history initiative of the Citadel Oral History Program, "ECOS" is a multi-media art exhibit now showing at the Columbia Museum of Art. Nineteen South Carolina Latinx artists have interpreted oral histories of Spanish-speaking immigrant workers in the Charleston area. On the eve of the opening, one of the contributing artists was detained by ICE and has been deported to Mexico.
