Old Blue No More: A History of Latinos at Yale – exhibit reception
Tuesday June 5, 12 noon
Memorabilia Room, Sterling Memorial Library
Join us for a special reception to celebrate the exhibit Old Blue No More: A History of Latinos at Yale, now on display in Sterling Memorial Library's exhibit corridor. Enjoy refreshments and then view the exhibit, which showcases the presence of Latinos at Yale since the 1960s.
Latinos have been at Yale for close to 50 years. This exhibit tells a story of their history, inspired by the documents left behind. While incomplete, it is nevertheless a story worth telling. Most of the archives, found at the Latino Cultural Center and the Yale Library – the main collaborators on this project – are from the 1970s, and reveal the central themes driving the community over the years. Those themes – securing a cultural center, recruiting more Latinos, demanding representation, student group activism and alumni – are all explored in this exhibit.
