The Latina History Project

Welcome to the Latina History Project (LHP). The LHP is a faculty-student research project that provides resources on Latina/o and Chicana/o feminism and activism in Texas since the 1960s.

While the project began with the goal of digitizing the “Rostros y Almas/Faces and Souls” exhibit on local Tejanas, it has grown to encompass the broader mission of enhancing understandings of Latina/o and Chicana/o history with an emphasis on inclusive learning and intergenerational knowledge transmission. The LHP includes a collection of oral histories and digitized archival documents from community activists and scholars, including key figures in the Chicana/o Movement in Texas.
