The Luis J. Botifoll Oral History Project digital collection includes transcriptions and video clips of oral history interviews conducted with members of the first generation of Cubans exiled since the Cuban Revolution. Interviewees include political prisoners, visual artists, community activists, and others.
Over 120 oral histories of families and activists displaced or connected to former Latino immigrant residents of the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. It is not only a genealogical migration into the community, especially of the first Puerto Rican immigrants to Chicago; it is also the birthplace of the Young Lords Latino civil and human rights movement. The interviews are online and archived at special collections in the Grand Valley State University Library.
