March is Women’s History Month, and we’re kicking it off with a Library Lunch Hour on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022 at 12 PM EST. In this installment of the Library Lunch Hour, we celebrate the Puerto Rican women represented throughout the Centro Archives. The lives and legacies of these individuals are crucial to the understanding of the Puerto Rican diasporic experience and these collections document activism and advocacy, the arts, and literature. Join us as we explore our digital collections and oral histories and celebrate these amazing women and how their lives continue to influence Puerto Rican studies and our communities.
