New DVD Chronicles Hispanic History In Oklahoma

The Hispanic community is contributing to Oklahoma's Centennial birthday with a new book and DVD. The families who shared their stories for the project celebrated its completion Sunday at the Martin Regional Library.

"Latinos Presentes" tells the stories of Hispanic families who've been in Oklahoma since the beginning of statehood, and the role they've played in getting us to where we are today.

"So many of these people came to other places first, to Dow, Oklahoma, which was a coal mining town, to Shaddock, Oklahoma, to Lee High, Oklahoma where the railroads and the mining camps were," project leader Yolanda Charney said.

"Latinos Presentes" is a history project and is not for sale, but you can check it out from libraries across the state. Teachers can also get free copies to use in the classroom. They just need to sign up for workshops at the Martin Regional Library, at 2601 S. Garnett Road, and Fulton Learning Center, located at 8906 E. 34th Street, next month.
