Somos Primos August 2013 155th Online Issue


Dear Friends and Family:

I have exciting news to share about the National Museum of the Latino Community. A featured session which I attended at the 2013 NCLR conference in New Orleans was entitled: The Making of America: Untold Stores from American Latino History. The panel was assembled under the auspices of the PBS Project, Latino Americans, a three-part, six-hour documentary series set to air nationally in the fall.

Description of the panel:
Despite a 500-year presence in North America, Latino culture, heritage, and history are severely underrepresented in educational curriculum, historic landmarks, and cultural institutions. National groups are working intently to uncover, document, and bring forward the many contributions that Hispanic Americans have made to this country since its formation.

Since most Latino activism has focused on issues of education, employment, medical needs, immigration, etc.it was of particular interest to note attention being paid to our history. The main topic which kept repeating itself throughout the panel discussion was the need for public family stories written from the Latino perspective.
Estuardo Rodriguez and Maria Cardona, both members of the Friends of the American Latino Museum, and Eduardo Diaz, Executive Director of the Smithsonian Latino Center pleaded for personal family stories to be written and shared.

Since I had already decided that in 2014, Somos Primos was going to move towards an even more heavy emphasis on personal and family histories, I was delighted.

I hope all of us can support the National Museum of the Latino Community by starting now to collect, compile, write or record our memories The Smithsonian wants YOUR memories in preparation for the Museum's projected archives.

Let me recommend a system which got me started writing my personal stories, First Writes, based on slotting sentences. Go to the Somos Primos website and scroll down to Write Your Own Personal History with First Writes.
Naturally Somos Primos wants your cuentos too.
Your experiences matter . .
Your perspective matters . .

Your stories matter . .
You matter . .

Sincerely, Mimi
