Latina/o Diaspora in the Americas
As Latinos become the largest minority group in the United States, there is a vital need to listen to the voices of Latina/o people and the issues that are affecting their communities. The Latina/o Diaspora in the Americas Project at SPOHP creates a space for Latinos to share their views on themes such as Hispanic/Latino identity, immigration reform, labor conditions, education and civil rights.
The project enables the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program to conduct and transcribe oral histories with individuals with Hispanic-Latinos in the United States. It is our hope that the gathering of these voices will help create dialogue between Latinas/os and non-Latinas/os so that together we can create a better future for all in the United States of America.
The Latina/o Diaspora in the Americas is documented by students, staff and volunteers at SPOHP in multiple forms, including:
- oral histories
and more. Visit the Research Topics & Resources page for more information.
- Juanita Duque, Latino History Coordinator.
