Description


The Rochester region traces its roots back to pioneers like Puerto Rican Domingo Delgado, a key Eastman Kodak executive of the 1890s. Like many immigrants before them, Latinos arrived in search of the better opportunities Rochester offered and by the 1950s had an established community with churches and businesses. The 1960s and 1970s brought the development of the Latino identity and foreshadowed the growing political and economic power the community wields today.


La region de Rochester tiene sus raices en pioneros tales como el puertorriqueno Domingo Delgado, un ejecutivo de Eastman Kodak de la decada de 1890. Al igual que muchos otros immigrantes antes que ellos, los latinos llegaron en busca de las mejores oportunidades que ofrece Rochester, y al llegar la decada de 1950 habia una comunidad establecida con iglesias y varias empresas. Los anos 1960 y 1970 trajieron el desarrollo de la identidad latina y presagiaron el creciente poder politico y economico que la comunidad ejerce hoy en dia.
