  • Positive Island Reception
    To Centro’s Heritage Poster Series


    When Puerto Rico-based reporter Libni Sanjurjo came across Centro’s Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series she said she felt as though she found a “treasure of information.”

    A history buff with a nose for news who discovered the series on the Centro website, she pitched the story to her editors at Primera Hora, a major Spanish news source in Puerto Rico, because she wanted to shed some light on this valuable educational resource that teachers on the island could use in the classroom to teach about the migration patterns of Puerto Ricans in the United States.

  • High Schoolers Learn
    Research Techniques at Centro Archives



    Kenia Tapia, 17, is working on a research paper for her high school class on hip-hop and Latinos in the United States. She admits she chose the topic because she loves music and finds any excuse to write about music.

    “You hear a lot about African Americans in hip hop,” she said. “But I want to hear more about Latinos. What are the Latino influences in hip hop? How has hip hop influenced Latino society today in the United States.”

    Kenia was among seven students in her class at the Academy of Urban Planning in Bushwick, Brooklyn who attended an April 8 workshop at the Centro Library and Archives to learn more about research resources available for students like her and to help prepare them if they choose to participate in a symposium sponsored by the Queens College Latin American and Latino Studies Program.
