    Timeline of Puerto Rican History for
    Our Subscribers

    Centro is pleased to share a new publication with you, a timeline of the history of Puerto Ricans in the United States. This timeline, in a booklet format, is adapted from our popular Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series. The resulting publication is a fantastically detailed history of Puerto Ricans’ experiences and contributions in the US.

    The timeline draws on the pioneering work done by Centro researchers and historians in the 1970s and 80s to reclaim once-forgotten parts of our history, and is an excellent resource for the celebration of our heritage, and the education of our future generations about those who came before them.

    To Thank all of you – Centro’s supporters – we are offering the digital version of this timeline to you for free. You can download it here.

    If you’re interested in using this timeline as a classroom tool please contact Surey Miranda, as we offer free classroom sets to educators.
