  • Centro's New Educational Tool
    Highlights Puerto Rican Heritage

    Centro’s new Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series is a collection of five large posters that provide a brief historical chronology of Puerto Ricans in the United States and three posters that are historical and demographic maps that pictorially reflect Puerto Rican migration. As part of Centro’s Traveling Exhibits program, the posters are available to educational and not-for-profit organizations. The posters are also available for sale to the general public.

    This rich heritage series is designed to provide an attractive visual educational tool for teachers and others to use in classrooms or other public spaces, and to introduce students to and interest them in this significant piece of Puerto Rican and American history.
