Raíces Cultural Center
“Stories are precious, and sharing them allows our ancestors to live on especially if their stories aren’t usually part of the dominant narrative.”
Raíces Cultural Center is dedicated to preserving cultural roots through the arts, history, and ecology. Their project, “Stories for the Ancestors, Stories of Healing,” collects and shares untold and undertold family histories, stories, and inter-generational memories. Video interviews from their project can be found on their website. Participation in Community History also inspired the development of the “Raíces Community History Project Panel,” a monthly meeting of community members of diverse backgrounds who provide feedback about current history-focused projects and programs and brainstorm new project ideas.
