Abstract

Abstract:

In this article, the authors provide an account of their two-level oral history project conducted at Our Lady of Guadalupe Center in partnership with Ohio State University (OSU) faculty and graduate students in the Hilltop neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. In this performance-based ethnographic project, OSU faculty and students first conducted oral histories of Alma Santos, the daughter of the Guadalupe Center's founder, and of the current director, Ramona Reyes, as well as shorter interviews with the Guadalupe Center's community theater ensemble. A performance was then created based on the oral histories and interviews, and performed by an ensemble of community members. The authors first provide a brief history of the Guadalupe Center and Hilltop, and then analyze the Spanish-speaking performance with a focus on community cultural wealth, placemaking, theater of place, and family.
