Puerto Rican Cultural Center founded


    1973 The Puerto Rican Cultural Center is opened. In its more than thirty years of existence, the PRCC is housed in several locations throughout the Humboldt Park neighborhood. With a strong commitment to the center’s motto, “Live and help to live,” the organization works to provide numerous services to the Puerto Rican and Latino communities. Named after Juan Antonio Corretjer, a poet and nationalist leader of Puerto Rico, the space offers Puerto Ricans/Latinos the opportunity to come together to address issues that confront their communities.
