Many individuals and institutions contributed to this project and it would have been impossible without their support. We thank them all.

La Salle students who worked on organizing and editing the audio and visual material include:

Mark Ventresca ’13, Sabrina Isaac ’14, Justin Ford ’17, and Anthony Perez ’18.

Gail Rubini designed the website.

Major financial support was provided by a grant from The Spencer Foundation (Chicago, IL). Additional funding was provided by Leaves and Grants, the Kelly Social Justice Research Center, and the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences, the Digital Arts and Media Design Program, and the Department of History, all at La Salle University.

 We are grateful for the assistance provided by the District of Antilles / South Mexico and the District of Eastern North America of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, the Asociación de Antiguos Alumnos De Los Colegios De La Salle en Cuba, and the La Salle Educational Center in Homestead (FL).

And in memory of those who we interviewed who have since passed away.
