APREE Celebratory Film and Educational Resources

In celebration and commemoration of its 50 year anniversary, we began production on a short, educational-film about the founding of the Department of Puerto Rican and Latino Studies (PRLS), Brooklyn College-City University of New YorkThrough a series of one-on-one interviews, an intergenerational event, La Reunion, and individual donations we have collected various memorabilia such as photos, video, flyers, artwork, and other documents related to student activism and agency from over the last five decades associated with the founding of PRLS. 

Below is a preview of these archival materials currently being digitized and organized as a digital humanities component to the film. For more information about this project and/or to submit your materials you can contact:
