From Northeastern University's University Archives and Special Collections comes Boston's Latino/a Community History: a collection of over 8,000 digitized items from two organizations. These include Inquillinos Boricuas en Accion, a tenants' rights and community development organization founded in 1967; and La Alianza Hispana, a civil rights organization founded in 1968 by educator Ana Maria Rodriguez. These digitized items include photographs, meeting minutes, newsletters, reports, and more. Visitors unfamiliar with these two organizations may want to start by reading the project section, which provides a short history of Inquillinos Boricuas en Accion and La Alianza Hispana. From here, visitors can conduct a search or browse the collection from the homepage. This collection can be browsed by creator, year, or subject (e.g. housing rehabilitation, community centers, Hispanic-American children). This rich collection may especially appeal to researchers interested in Latinx history, urban history, and the history of community organizing.
