Oral History Lab at UPR–Mayagüez

The OHL aims to support the collection and preservation of oral histories and micro-documentaries from across the Puerto Rican archipelago.

After the summer of 2019, you go out to the streets to protest and the governor who had been elected by the people has to resign. Then COVID hits, and it changed the history of the world, not only of Puerto Rico. Many countries in the world, economically disadvantaged, do not have access to vaccines, do not have access to medicine, many have died. And in the United States, the richest country in the world, many have died of not having care for its citizens, and it has been the country that has the most people who died in the world, despite being the most economically developed country in the world with its best pharmaceutical companies and its hospitals and doctors.
