Join us for un Cafecito con… Cuatro Calles, a podcast on history, culture, and memory. Cuatro Calles host, Eric QuiƱones is working on archiving the history of Puerto Ricans in New York with the goal of keeping the history and influence of Puerto Ricans in the mainstream in the face of changing demographics. He’s joined in conversation by Manuel Frau Ramos, editor of El Sol Latino and on the Board of Directors for the Holyoke Public Library. Like Eric, he is working to keep the history and culture of Puerto Ricans in Holyoke, MA alive. Join us as we explore the efforts that go into cataloguing our history and making it accessible.
