Preserving Colorado’s Hispano, Latino, and Chicano COVID-19 Stories

The retention of six jobs to work with community partners and the public to collect oral histories from the Hispanic, Latino, and Chicano populations of Colorado about their experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic.

History Colorado is requesting funding for six humanities positions to support COVID-19 collection and engagement activities that reach out to Colorado’s Hispanic, Latino and Chicano population. History Colorado has launched a comprehensive collecting campaign to preserve the Colorado COVID-19 experience. Preliminary evaluation of this campaign suggests an underrepresentation in the collection of the COVID-19 experiences of Colorado’s Hispanic, Latino, and Chicano communities. These communities are disproportionately suffering from the COVID-19 effects on health, community, and economy. Uncovering, documenting, and adding to the History Colorado collection these so far little-known COVID-19 narratives demand the implementation of critical community engagement and curatorial strategies.
