For the past year, The Lorain Historical Society and El Centro de Servicios Sociales in Lorain, as well as staff and faculty at Oberlin College, have been collaborating on an exhibit celebrating 100 years of Latinas/os in Lorain. This exhibit features oral histories, photos and additional archival materials documenting this long history with a focus on Vine Avenue, a vibrant neighborhood that was home to many Mexican, Puerto Rican and other Latin American newcomers arriving in Lorain through the mid-1950s. The Bonner Center, the Multicultural Resource Center, and Department of Comparative American Studies are excited to bring a group of Oberlin Students to Lorain on Saturday, October 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., for a special program to meet with community partners, learn about community organizing in Lorain, and attend the exhibit.
Capacity is limited and prior registration is REQUIRED.
The Registration form will close on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. or when capacity is reached.
