We are delighted to share with you the recently published digital timeline: "A Chronology of Latinx History in Charleston.鈥 https://ldhi.library.cofc.edu/exhibits/show/las-voces/introduction-2/a-chronology-of-latinx-histori
Published through the Lowcountry Digital Library at the College of Charleston, the chronology continues the Charleston Oral History Program at The Citadel鈥檚 work to document local Latinx history and culture. "Las Voces," published in 2017, is a digital history exhibit that draws from forty interviews with various Charleston鈥檚 Latinx community members, and 鈥淎qu铆 Estamos,鈥 https://lcdl.library.cofc.edu/content/aqui-estamos-here-we-are-digital-collection/
is a National Endowment for the Humanities-sponsored effort to establish the first Latinx-related archival collections in the region.
The chronology spotlights the deep roots and experiences of Charleston鈥檚 Latinx communities. These are some highlights:
鈥 The chronology helps to situate immigrant labor at the center of modern Charleston history, noting that Latinx immigrants have generated great wealth for agribusiness and helped construct the region鈥檚 modern infrastructure.

鈥 It shows a dynamic Latinx presence moving through the area and developing relationships with established local communities since the fifties. As soon as immigrants arrived in significant numbers and there were efforts to assert their rights as human beings, African American civil rights activists and members of white faith groups provided critical support to them.

鈥 Highlights the efforts of a variety of groups to celebrate Latinx cultures since the seventies.

鈥 Indicates the response of business and public services to target the growing Latinx community at the beginning of the 21 Century.

鈥 Hints at the emergence of immigrant rights organizations and efforts to gain political representation.

We hope that the timeline will be a useful tool for scholars, activists, educators, and policymakers that will prompt more questions, research, and action.

Finally, we would love to hear from you. Let us know what you think about the chronology and share with us your memories of Lowcountry Latinx history.

Tenemos el agrado de compartir con ustedes "Una cronolog铆a de la historia Latina en Charleston". https://ldhi.library.cofc.edu/exhibits/show/las-voces/las-voces-spanish/una-cronologia-de-la-historia-
Publicada a trav茅s de la Biblioteca Digital del Lowcountry-College of Charleston, la cronolog铆a representa un nuevo paso en el trabajo del programa de historia oral para documentar la historia y la cultura latinx en la regi贸n. Se suma a "Las Voces", una exhibici贸n de historia digital que se basa en cuarenta entrevistas con residentes Latinx de Charleston y a 鈥淎qu铆 Estamos鈥 https://lcdl.library.cofc.edu/content/aqui-estamos-here-we-are-digital-collection/
es un esfuerzo patrocinado por el National Endowment for the Humanities para establecer las primeras colecciones de archivos relacionados con las comunidades Latinx en la regi贸n.
La cronolog铆a evidencia las hondas ra铆ces de las experiencias de las comunidades latinx de Charleston. Algunos aspectos a destacar son:

鈥 Ayuda a situar la mano de obra inmigrante en el centro de la historia moderna de Charleston, se帽alando que los inmigrantes latinx han generado una gran riqueza para los agronegocios y tambi茅n han ayudado a construir la infraestructura moderna de la regi贸n.

鈥 Muestra una din谩mica presencia latina movi茅ndose en la regi贸n y cultivando relaciones con las comunidades locales desde los a帽os cincuenta. Tan pronto como llegaron inmigrantes en cantidades significativas y comenzaron los esfuerzos para hacer valer sus derechos y afirmar su humanidad, los activistas de derechos civiles afroamericanos y miembros de grupos religiosos mayormente blancos les brindaron un apoyo fundamental.

鈥 Destaca los esfuerzos de una variedad de grupos para celebrar las culturas latinx desde los a帽os setenta.

鈥 Indica la proliferaci贸n de negocios y servicios p煤blicos que emergieron con la creciente comunidad latinx a principios del siglo XXI.

鈥 Provee indicios del surgimiento de organizaciones que luchan por los derechos de los inmigrantes como as铆 tambi茅n los esfuerzos para ganar representaci贸n pol铆tica.

Esperamos que esta cronologia sea una herramienta 煤til para acad茅micos, activistas, educadores y representantes p煤blicos y que ayude a generar m谩s preguntas, investigaci贸n y acci贸n.

Finalmente, nos encantar铆a saber de ustedes: lo que piensan de esta cronolog铆a y tambi茅n las memorias que les trae de estos y otros eventos de la historia de los latinos en el Lowcountry. Esperamos sus comentarios!

Susan Breslin, Interview by Kieran Taylor, 3 October, 2013 - Lowcountry Digital Library Catalog Search

We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Folly Beach resident Susan Breslin, who spoke to an oral history class several years ago about her work with the Congress of Racial Equality and civil rights activism in the 1960s.

That conversation and many others related to the civil rights movement are part of the Citadel Oral History Program Collection.
