CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

Collection, 100PR_OHP

Beginning in 2013, the 100 Puerto Rican Oral History project's goal is to interview Puerto Ricans who have made a significant impact, in their professional fields and to the Puerto Rican community within the United States. Those interviewed come from Puerto Rican communities throughout the country and are leaders or pioneers in a wide variety of fields, including, arts and culture, business, education, economic development, community activism, health and community welfare, military, politics and government, and religion. The interviews capture the life stories of the interviewees from childhood to the present, with a focus on their areas of greatest impact. The project originally aimed to capture oral histories from one hundred significant Puerto Ricans to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the founding of Centro, but the nominees for the project quickly exceeded the original mandate.
