Hispanics on the Central Coast*
This collection is based on a photo essay depicting the contributions of Hispanic people to life of the community in the counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura. This exhibit focuses on those Hispanics who, without recognition or great material rewards, helped to build the social and economic prosperity of this nation. This collection is based on a photographic exhibit that was produced by the Black Gold Information Center in cooperation with the System Advisory Board of the Black Gold Cooperative Library network. The photographs were borrowed from a number of museums and libraries and from individuals within the Hispanic communities.
