  • Centro Looks Ahead
    After Its 40th Anniversary Celebration

    As Centro comes off the year-long celebration of its milestone 40th anniversary in February, at age 41 we look forward to growing bigger and even better, continuing to work hard to affirm our commitment to promoting the understanding, preserving and sharing of the history of Puerto Rican migration.

    Centro was born on February 26, 1973 into a world of social turmoil in the U.S. Established by a coalition of CUNY students, community activists and academics from the fledgling Puerto Rican Studies Departments of colleges and universities, Centro was designed, its founders wrote, to promote the emergent field of Puerto Rican studies as a “crucial nexus for the study of economic, political and cultural processes of import ranging far beyond the social problems of a single minority concentrated in one United States city.”

  • Centro's New Educational Tool
    Highlights Puerto Rican Heritage

    Centro’s new Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series is a collection of five large posters that provide a brief historical chronology of Puerto Ricans in the United States and three posters that are historical and demographic maps that pictorially reflect Puerto Rican migration. As part of Centro’s Traveling Exhibits program, the posters are available to educational and not-for-profit organizations. The posters are also available for sale to the general public.

    This rich heritage series is designed to provide an attractive visual educational tool for teachers and others to use in classrooms or other public spaces, and to introduce students to and interest them in this significant piece of Puerto Rican and American history.
