The goals of the Fox Point Cape Verdean Project are to:
1)organize, preserve, digitize and catalogue primary source documents, visual material and 8mm footage of the Cape Verdean community and major institutions including: the St Antonio Association, the former Boys Club (now Boys & Girls Club) and Local 1329 of the International Longshoremen’s Association.
2)reconstitute and rebuild the former Cape Verdean community in real and virtual time emphasizing a Cape Verdean “voice” and perspective through creative expression and public engagement.
3)build a database and a model of scholarly and community collaboration for the preservation of the history, legacy, culture and traditions of Cape Verdeans in Fox Point. This is a multi-faceted initiative that includes but is not limited to: archival research, preservation, oral history, documentary productions, public exhibitions, non-linear digital narrative installations, and websites.
4)secure resources for the archival video preservation and transfer of work shot in multiple video formats, including over seventy hours of 1/2″ reel-to-reel video shot by Cape Verdean video artist/videographer Tony D. Ramos. His footage includes material shot in Cape Verde in l975 at the time of independence, meetings in the Cape Verdean community in Fox Point during the same era as well as his travels through Senegal, Iran, and China.
