The Oberlin Heritage Center and Oberlin Public Library are excited to host the guest exhibit “Celebrating 100 Years: Latino History in Lorain, Ohio.” The exhibit, created through a partnership of El Centro, the Lorain Historical Society, and Oberlin College, highlights the initial work of the Latino Lorain History Project and features photographs and oral histories, particularly focused on the history of Vine Avenue in Lorain. The exhibit will be available for viewing any time the Oberlin Public Library is open between September 24 and October 8, which also falls during National Hispanic Heritage Month. Interactive elements will be incorporated for people to share comments and connect with the Oberlin Heritage Center to share memories about Oberlin Latino history as well. For more information on this project please visit the Lorain Historical Society Website
An exhibit opening will be held at the library at 6:00 p.m. on September 23. Those interested in attending the opening presentation must RSVP to Liz Schultz at [email protected] by September 19.
