Latino History Project
Contact: Marjorie McIntosh and Kent Willman – Project Directors
Grant awarded June 13, 2019
The Latino History Project, based at the University of Colorado, was founded in 2013 to help correct the limited presence of local Latino history and culture in most schools and history books. Through their regional grant, the Latino History Project will introduce teachers to the vast resources of the Library of Congress and a more inclusive range of materials to support content/curriculum. Together with local partners, this project will host four workshops across Colorado in communities with high Latino populations. Workshop leaders will use resources from the Library of Congress and other local collections to help teachers create curriculum which tell the stories of the Latino community over time. The overriding goal of the project is to increase Latino student knowledge about their own heritage and to develop a sense of pride and positive identity.
