    Key Cultural Organizations Join
    Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans

    As part of the 40th anniversary and 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign for historical preservation, designed to add depth and breadth to the Centro Library and Archives’ collections, we are honoring seven cultural organizations and one community leader who have worked hard to preserve Puerto Rican culture, history and art in New York City.

    The eight honorees have agreed to join Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans by donating their papers to the Archives. The 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign will allow the Centro Archives to continue documenting the experiences that are the living history of Puerto Ricans in the United States. These stories will be the source of information for future historians, researchers, students and the community.
