A sample of documents that represent “Black and Women’s Voices” is now available in digitized format from the Resource Centre collections of York’s Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean (CERLAC).
A sampling of “Indigenous Voices” will follow soon (https://vitacollections.ca/cerlacresourcecentre/search). The digitized materials form part of an equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) project supported by the Office of the President, and they come from very large and unique collections of original historical documents on these and other topics.
Founded in 1978, CERLAC and its Resource Center (currently located on the sixth floor of the Kaneff Tower) were inspired by the exiled students and scholars who arrived in Canada from the military dictatorships of the time in Latin America. It incorporates the library of the Latin American Working Group (LAWG) that functioned as an independent civic organization that engaged in research, publication, and activism from the mid-1960s to the mid-1990s.
