Recommendations for Interview Candidates sought for the Luis J. Botifoll Oral History Project

The Luis J. Botifoll Oral History Project is dedicated to conducting interviews with members of the first generation of Cubans exiled since the Cuban Revolution. Interviewees include political prisoners, visual artists, community activists, entrepreneurs, and others. The Project was launched in April 2008 with the support of the Amigos of the Cuban Heritage Collection and aims to record and provide access to these testimonies in support of the Cuban Heritage Collection’s efforts to document the Cuban experience on the island and in the diaspora. To date we have recorded 47 interviews, 19 of which are available online.

This May, the Botifoll Oral History Project Selection Committee will meet to choose the next round of interviewees for 2011-2012.  If you know of someone who would be a good candidate to interview as part of this Project, we invite you to submit their name and information by completing the form here »
