Batiendo La Olla ("Stirring the Pot"): A Cross-Generational Comparison and Self-Study by Second Generation Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia. A Final Narrative Report to "Youthgrants in the Humanities," National Endowment for the Humanities.
Taller Puertorriqueno, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
During the months from February 1977 to December 1978, Taller Puertorriqueno, Inc., conducted an oral history project to produce a cross-generational comparison of Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania). The project was designed to train young people to be perceptive human beings who were sensitive to their environment and especially aware of their historical heritage. The initial plan was to interview 25 first-generation Puerto Ricans and 36 second-generation Puerto Ricans; eventually, 65 taped oral histories and transcriptions were produced for an archive, although the line between the generations became less clear with increasing knowledge. Some program participants were interviewed about their participation in the study. Six of these evaluation interviews are included in Section I, the narrative report. Other sections of this final report present the following works produced by the project: (1) an interpretive report on housing, employment conditions, and intracity migration based on interview data and material from the literature; (2) a report on cultural dimensions of the migration; (3) an interview in Spanish with an elderly man; and (4) an epilogue paper on the oral history project by A. L. Galanes (Section V). Some of the text and selected interviews are provided in Spanish. (SLD)
