Dear naclistas,

Be sure to also check out our weekly photography column, Para ver(nos), by visiting NACLA's Instagram, where we're featuring the Historical Archive of Vieques' Catanzaro collection. The Historical Archive of Vieques is a community initative whose mission is to preserve history from the perspective of people in struggle. The Catanzaro collection includes more than seven hundred photographs taken by the Catanzaro family from Baltimore, MD, during their stay on Vieques in early 1941 to December 1942. In 1990, August "Gus" Catanzaro donated the original negatives to the Historical Archive of Vieques. The photographs pay particular attention to women and the militarized environment on the island at the time. You can follow the project on Instagram at @archivohistoricodevieques
