Memorable Speeches Delivered Via Dominican American National Roundtable Conventions and Summits
Washington, DC. The Dominican American National Roundtable and the National Dominican American Council present a unique audio-visual series entitled “Memorable Speeches” delivered via DANR conventions and summits.
The series has been produced in response to requests from DANR members, friends, supporters, students and scholars interested in documenting the Dominican migratory experience in the United States.
Among the first files, DANR has retrieved from its audio-visual archives a speech delivered by Silvio Torres-Saillant, Ph.D., at the DANR annual conference held at the City College of New York in 2004.
His speech is available here or at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s47L1ewtYBY&feature=youtu.be
The series is produced by the Common Roots Project, an independent initiative aimed at documenting the migratory experience in the U.S. via conducting and disseminating research studies about the cultures, histories and untold stories of the Americas and the Caribbean.
In the weeks ahead, DANR will release via its national network and website, a list and links to memorable speeches delivered by leaders, scholars, students, DANR presidents, board members and experts along DANR over 14 years of existence.
