“Veteranos of Pomona: Local Stories of Latinos in the Military” is a youth-centered, community history project based on the stories of Latina/Latino military veterans and their families.
The result of a community-based partnership between Pomona College (Claremont, CA) and The dA Center for the Arts (Pomona, CA), “Veteranos of Pomona” begins as an effort to train local youth to conduct 30 oral histories with local Latinos veterans and their families, spanning the period of the Vietnam War to the present. These oral histories will then serve as the foundation for an interdisciplinary museum exhibit framing these stories as part of our collective past. Utilizing video, audio, and visual materials–including works of visual and performance art inspired by the stories–the exhibit will connect present-day Latino youth to living sacrifices of three generations of Pomona residents.
