    Preserving Puerto Rican Culture
    By Enhancing Centro’s Archives

    The Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) honored seven cultural organizations and one community leader who have joined the ranks of Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans at a reception at the Silberman School of Social Work in East Harlem.

    “These members of our community have worked tirelessly to preserve Puerto Rican culture, history and art in New York City,” said Mayra Torres, Centro’s assistant director of development, media and external relations. “We honor them not only as Puerto Ricans who have made a difference, but for another special reason: agreeing to contribute their papers, oral histories and other memorabilia to the Centro Archives’ 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign.”

  • The Legacy of Centro
    Researcher Ricardo Campos Orta

    It was a gathering among old friends to remember and pay tribute to one of Centro’s early researchers, the late Ricardo Campos Orta.

    Carlos Sanabria of Hostos Community College talked about Campos’ generous spirit as a scholar and human being at Remembering Ricardo Campos Orta, the May 9 event, part of Centro’s Legacy Series. Sanabria said that Campos Orta’s work needs to be shared more broadly. At the event, guests received a new book, Ricardo Campos,1946-2012 En Memoria, compiled by those who knew him and his work. .
