    A Famed Reporter, a Quest by a Mom, a Pionera’s Unpublished Story, A Historical Novel and a Book Review… Next in Centro Voices

    The next issue of Centro Voices is packed with five stories you will not want to miss. The famed reporter is the inimitable David Gonzalez, the well-known New York Times reporter and photojournalist. The object of the mom’s quest is culturally relevant children’s books. The short story is by Pura Belpré, and the excerpt is from a new historical novel about the first Puerto Rican to be put to death in the electric chair. Also on the e- pages of this edition of Centro Voices is a book review analyzing literature by Puerto Rican women writers and filmmakers.

    First Samy Nemir Olivares shares his interview with the particular voice of the South Bronx, David Gonzalez. Gonzalez has devoted his professional life to capturing through images and words the essence and battles of the city’s Latino and mostly Puerto Rican communities. Along with the Q&A is an audio segment and a montage of Gonzalez’s photos.

    In their own Voices: Contextualizing
    The Puerto Rican Experience through
    Oral History

    What is an oral history? Is my story worth telling? What is the point of telling it?

    The answers to these and other questions will be part of a conversation when Shakti Castro, Cynthia Tobar, and Sarah Molinari of Centro’s Memorias Oral History Project will discuss their experiences as interviewers of dozens of accomplished Puerto Ricans living in the U.S., their initial findings and other interesting insights into the process. This event will also feature short clips from oral history interviews, a discussion moderated by Ismael Garcia Colon of the College of Staten Island and the CUNY Graduate Center and a Q&A session.
