Latinos in the Bronx piece together their own history, NY Daily News

As part of a year-long effort to collect the Bronx’s Latino history, the Bronx County Historical Society has installed a new exhibit featuring vintage photos, vinyl records of Latino music and old newspapers, the NY Daily News reports.

“We want to open up a dialogue about this,” Angel Hernandez told the newspaper. “We want to give people the opportunity to speak up and become a part of Bronx history.”

Today, Hispanics make up 53.5% of the borough’s population, up from 48.3% a decade ago, according to the latest government census.
