Oral History Workshop with Rhode Island Latino Arts Executive Director Marta V. Martínez

The Museum of Work & Culture, a division of the Rhode Island Historical Society and Smithsonian Affiliate, invites the public to participate in an oral history workshop on Saturday, June 25 from 3-5pm led by Rhode Island Latino Arts (RILA)’s Nuestras Raíces Latino Oral History Project of Rhode Island.

RILA Executive Director Marta V. Martínez will instruct workshop participants on the best practices for interviewing a wide range of people in their own lives and communities.

Attendance is free, but registration is required. Please contact mowc@rihs.org to sign up.

The Nuestras Raíces Latino Oral History Project of Rhode Island has documented the stories of Latinos all over the state of Rhode Island for decades. They will be working with the Museum through September collecting stories from Woonsocket’s Latino communities in concert with the Museum’s current exhibitions “Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964” (a bilingual poster exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution) and “This Kind of Love, Our Love: Latino Stories in the Blackstone Valley, 1960s-Today” (created by the Museum of Work & Culture in collaboration with Rhode Island Latino Arts).

Funding provided in part by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, through the Rhode Island Culture, Humanities, and Arts Recovery Grant (RI CHARG) program. This program was made possible thanks to the National Endowment for the Humanities, via funds from the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
