  • Centro Preserves
    History of Puerto Rican Women


    As we celebrate Women's History Month in March, Centro pays tribute to Puerto Rican women who have paved the way, and continue to do so, in New York City and in enclaves across the United States.

    For Dr. Virginia Sánchez-Korrol, a historian and professor emerita at Brooklyn College, preserving the story of Puerto Rican women is a mission she lives by. She is especially interested in Puerto Ricans and Latinas in the United States and regularly writes about the history of women, family and ethnicity in New York City.

    Pure Belpré: More than Storyteller

    Pura Belpré: Walking Outside the Book
    Panelists: Manuel Morán and Marilisa Jiménez-García
    Performance Artist: Flor Bromley
    Thursday, March 27, 6-8 pm
    Hunter College, 68th Street and Lexington Avenue
    Faculty Dining Room, West Building, 8th Floor

    Co-sponsored with Society of the Educational Arts (SEA)

    While she may be best known as a librarian and storyteller, there is much more to know about Pura Belpré. Dr. Marilisa Jiménez-García, currently doing research at Centro, will discuss Belpré’s use of fables to embed political messages and how she used the symbolism of lighting of candles in her writing. Dr. Manuel Morán, director of the Society of the Educational Arts, will talk about bringing Belpré’s storytelling to life through theater. And in the persona of Belpré, performance artist Flor Bromley, will present scenes from her stories.

  • 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.
