The Portuguese-American Legacy: Collecting, Archiving and disseminating our History

The Portuguese-American Oral History Project, part of PBBI at Fresno State is entering the phase of amplifying our collection with student involvement and archival in the Henry Madden Library, in order to reach all students, researchers, and the community at large.  In order to do this task, we need the generosity of the community.  Please contribute and be part of this grassroots, community-based movement to register, archive, and disseminate the history of the Portuguese-American community, including the establishment of Bruma Publications that will be an outlet for publishing our collective stories and establish a body of works for our students and scholars, while building a bridge with the community and our multicultural society.
