We coordinate projects that investigate and document the history, identity, and human rights of the Afro-descendant and other communities of southern Caribbean Costa Rica (Caribe Sur). 

Our goal is to assist the community of Caribe Sur in growing a living public archive and making information about their history and rights more easily accessible both within and outside the community.
