The Mexican Heritage Project has done such an amazing job in cementing the rich history of Arizona and the Mexican and Mexican American community with vibrant photographs, journals, oral histories, and business records. This effort of the traveling exhibit is the beginning of a long-term project in where we will displaying the Photographs to different sectors of the community. For example, we want to share the exhibit with community centers and public libraries and we will also be encouraging the Mexican and Mexican American Community to donate materials, and their stories via oral histories.
