You are invited to come share your stories at the Bayou City Policing – History Harvest Day at the Leonel J. Castillo Community Center. A history harvest is an event devoted to recording and preserving the records of the community. In this case, we encourage you to bring your stories, photographs, newspaper clippings, and personal artifacts from your family records. This History Harvest aims to collect stories and artifacts about the historical relationship between Mexican American/Latinx communities and the Houston Police Department. Our hope is to collect stories that emphasize instances of conflict and cooperation.

Select recorded interview excerpts and scans from the Harvest will be included within the organizers’ digital repository. Once scanned, the original photos and documents will be returned to the patron. In addition, high-quality scans of the artifacts will be provided to community members to reproduce prints and preserve the original photos/documents.

In partnership with the Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage, the Collective of Progressive Educators (COPE), and Mario A. Salinas at the Leonel Castillo Community Center, we are inviting la gente de Houston to come and share your stories and experiences. the door is open to the community, activists, students, educators, archivists, researchers, advocates, and law enforcement. We will also be screening Raúl r salinas and the Poetry of Liberation Documentary Film followed by a Q&A with the Austin-based filmmakers.
