Become Part of Our History: Join Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans
To encourage individuals and organizations to record and document their experiences for future generations, Centro and a group of community volunteers have launched the 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign. The goal is to urge those who have made a difference in our community to donate their important documents to the Centro Archives and to fill gaps in our collections.

Labor Comes to a Close
Labor, the successful art exhibition inspired by holdings in the Centro Archives, will come to a close on Wednesday, February 29, at the East Harlem Art Gallery. Don’t miss the chance to experience this exhibit that pays tribute to workers who helped pave the way for Puerto Ricans and Latinos in New York City.
As Susana Torruella-Leval, curator of the exhibition wrote in the exhibit cata¬log: “Labor pays tribute to the nearly 600,000 workers who migrated from Puerto Rico to the United States dur¬ing the 1940s and ‘50s in search of work and a better life. It also cel¬ebrates Centro’s move to a new home in El Barrio, the portal of the Puerto Rican migration, which gave Centro its founding purpose.”
Labor originally opened as a highlight to the October inauguration of the Centro Library and Archives’ new location in the Silberman School of Social Work in East Harlem. By popular demand, the exhibit was extended until the end of this month.
