Tell Us Your Story • Share A Memory

Nuestras Raíces: The Latino Oral History Project of RI would like to offer you an opportunity to share your personal story or any memory and participate in our Community Story Collecting Initiative.

Where to Begin: There is no recipe for a story. It can be simple and it can be complicated. For inspiration, click on the “Latino Stories” tab below and take a look at some of the questions we ask there to get you started. You might want to write something out on a separate piece of paper. Keep in mind, the preferred word count max is 500 words.

This is a site about telling your own story or sharing a memory, so begin by telling us who you are, where this story takes place or what prompted this memory. What were you doing? Who was with you? Where were you when the story started? How did you feel? What did you think about what was happening to you? How do you feel about it now?

When you’re done: Think about what you just wrote, what you said. Is there anything that needs to be added? Do you need to take anything out? Fine tune your story until you are ready to submit below.

Required items have an asterisk *

Photos: While it is not mandatory, we do welcome any digital photos to include with your story. NOTE: Best photos are high resolution 300 dpi .jpg or .pdf format. If you have a story about immigration you may also upload scanned documents, such as a copy of a letter, passport or other papers/photos important to your story. If you prefer, you can E-Mail documents or photos to this address: info@nuestrasraicesri.org
