Announcing the Young Lords in Lincoln Park Project at GVSU

On Sunday, September 23, 2012, faculty and undergraduate student researchers at Grand Valley State University (GVSU) launched an oral history project, dedicated to documenting the history of the displacement of Puerto Ricans, Mejicanos, other Latinos, and the poor from Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, as well as the history of the Young Lords nationwide. Recording, preserving, and making these memories accessible to teachers, researchers, and the community is the guiding aim of this effort.
