PBBI project seeks to archive memories of Portuguese-American community’s grandparents

Celebrating my avós-Sharing my Roots project

The Portuguese Beyond Borders Institute (PBBI) has partnered with the newspaper “Tribuna Portuguesa” for a project which seeks to preserve the memories of the Portuguese-American community’s grandparents.

The “Celebrating my avós-Sharing my Roots” project asks the Portuguese-American community to share photographs, a memory, a trip, an event, a story, or a moment in time of their grandparent — or a recipe, writings, musical interpretation or lyrics by their grandparent.

Once the submissions are collected, they will be edited, archived, and published through the legacy page of the “Tribuna Portuguesa” newspaper.

Submissions can be emailed to dborges@mail.fresnostate.edu by July 21, 2020.
