“We want to question, recollect, analyze, and archive histories and experiences across the Antillean Caribbean region with the mission of creating, conserving, and spotlighting counter narratives.”
–Leticia Berdecia, Archivos del Caribe
Archivos del Caribe, a community-based and community-led archive and literary collective, will spotlight public history across rural areas of Puerto Rico through participatory methods – oral history interviews, archival digitization of family records, and architectural surveys of Cayey’s historic core – to provide a greater dimensionality to the complex past and present of this region for future generations.
Team members include: Leticia Berdecia, Nicole Collazo Santana, Natalia Gulick de Torres, Roberto Guzmán-Hernández, Emilie Raboteur, Luis Rivera Jiménez, Paula E. Roque Rivera, Roudhia Sellin, Ana Teresa Solá Rivière, and Gabriel Torres Ojeda.
