Latinos in Rhode Island

Latinos in Rhode Island. Nuestras Raíces: The Latino Oral History Project of Rhode Island was started in 1991 with one single interview. Since then, it has become a wide-range collection of personal stories, photos and pieces of paper documenting the history of Rhode Island’s Spanish-speaking community. Our mission is to collect, share and celebrate the diverse experiences through the voices of Latinos in Rhode Island. The Rhode Island Latino History Collection is the official archives of Latino history in the State of Rhode Island. It was created to make public what before 1991 were unheard stories and unseen photos that have been generously shared by the people whose stories we tell.
