MARIETTA —The Marietta Museum of History is proud to announce the creation our official Cobb County Latinx Research Archives. This project is an ongoing process and a culmination of the work completed by two English 1102: Honors Composition II classes in 2020 and 2021 with students in the Honors Journey College at Kennesaw State University. Students in Dr. Rochelle Harris Cox’s classes have learned valuable research methods while also helping to establish the first set of research at the museum focused primarily on Latinx history and their establishment in our community. The students have contributed more than 200 files of new information to our research archives.
This collaboration began in 2018. Earlier classes focused on adding to the existing Cobb County African American Research Archives here at the museum. In 2019, a special reception was hosted by the Kennesaw State University’s Center for African and African Diaspora Studies to thank these students for their work in continuing our efforts to preserve ALL history!
The Marietta Museum of History is proud to honor Hispanic and Latinx heritage with this active project.
