The Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series

The Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series is the result of collective efforts undertaken since the 1970s to rescue, document and preserve the long history of Puerto Rican migration and the experiences and contributions of Puerto Ricans to U.S. society. The Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) at Hunter College, CUNY has been a leading contributor to these efforts. This poster series relies on and incorporates many decades of historical recovery work by Puerto Rican studies researchers at Centro and many other higher education institutions and by the dedicated team of professionals at the Centro Library and Archives.

A total of eight posters were designed for this series to provide an attractive visual educational tool for teachers and others to use in the classroom or any suitable public spaces, and to introduce students to and interest them in the historical information highlighted in the poster captions and accompanying images. Five of the posters constitute the Brief Historical Chronology of Puerto Ricans in the United States and the remaining three are demographic and historical maps that reflect different aspects of the Puerto Rican migration experience in the United States.

As a very special promotion for Puerto Rican Heritage Month, anyone who registers to be a member of our Puerto Rico Nation can receive some of these resources that are usually for sale, for free. To find out more about how Centro can help you teach and share our history and culture, email centroed@hunter.cuny.edu
