Is There Such a Thing as Too Many Tamales?

Join us for a Community Tamalada on Sat. Dec. 14, 2019 from 10:30am to 12n.

Your Story Can be Part of Latino History



Raices Platicas logo-circle

Latinos have been the fastest growing yet most underrepresented ethnic group in historical documents in Rhode Island. This is why we want to collect items and stories about life in Rhode Island’s barrios | neighborhoods, and to provide a forum for Spanish-speaking immigrants to make their voices heard, and their photos placed in an archive for future generations to see.

Do you want to contribute your story and old photographs to the Latino Archives? For more information, click here
