  • Centro Honors 23 Puerto Ricans At Two Events in Chicago and Massachusetts


    As part of its 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign Preserving Our History, Centro recently honored 23 leaders in the Puerto Rican community at affinity events in Chicago and Worcester, Mass.

    Sixteen leaders from Chicago and seven from Worcester were recognized for agreeing to join Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans by donating their papers or oral histories to the Centro Archives. The donations allow the Centro Archives to continue documenting the experiences that are the living history of Puerto Ricans in the United States. And will be the sources of information about Puerto Ricans living in the U.S. for future historians, researchers, students and the community.
