                 Don Harrington Discovery Center – Space Theater Shows

                             "Lest We Forget: The Dust Bowl"


The struggles and triumphs of farming families are documented in the video "Lest We
Forget: The Dust Bowl." The story is told through the eyes of teenager Anne Marie Low,
and shares her pain and challenge as she overcomes the obstacles set before her. The
viewer follows the events of the Dust Bowl chronologically ... beginning with the onset of
drought, and ending, finally with relief in the form of rain. It touches on the heroes of the
Dust Bowl ... those that documented the pain of the farmers in the area, including Woody
Guthrie and Dorthea Lange. The video also highlights the true stories of those who
witnessed the events first-hand. The authentic diary of Anne Marie Low is woven
throughout the video, and gives viewers a taste of the emotions that surrounded many Dust
Bowl events. For example, Anne Marie shows anger toward the government and
exasperation with her social life. She shows the viewer the utilitarian way she, and many
others of the time, lived. "Lest We Forget: The Dust Bowl" is a comprehensive documentary
of the events of the 1930's in the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas
and Colorado. From illness to migration, it covers the strength of the people who endured
the dust storms, drought and poverty of the Dust Bowl.
