Abstract

An Ecuadorian-born community activist, Carlos Vega moved to Holyoke, Massachusetts, with his family in 1955. Settling in the working-class "Flats" neighborhood at a time when many of Holyoke's factories were relocating to the southern United States or Asia, the Vegas were one of the few Spanish-speaking families in the city, but when Carlos began to work on a local tobacco farm at the age of 14, he encountered the new influx of migrants from Puerto Rico who had been lured to the Connecticut Valley as agricultural laborers by the Department of Labor. With the Puerto Rican economy declining in the 1960s, many of these farm workers settled permanently in Springfield and Holyoke, but they soon discovered that the declining economy there combined with racism and urban decay blocked their hopes for upward mobility. Radicalized by the anti-colonial, antiwar, and Civil Rights movements of the late 1960s, Vega emerged as an important community organizer in the 1970s, working with Fair Share, New Unity, Urban Ministry, and other progressive organizations. With a backdrop of riots, arson, and racial tension, these organizations focused on issues relevant to the Puerto Rican community, particularly voter education and registration, fair housing, and education. In 1982, Vega helped found Nueva Esperanza, a non-profit community development organization whose mission was to restore and maintain blighted buildings in South Holyoke. He worked with Nueva Esperanza for over 30 years, continuing until 2010 after a brain cancer diagnosis in 1995. He survived until April 2012.

The materials in the Vega collection reflect one activist's deep-seated interests in left wing movements in Central America, the Caribbean, Asia, South America, and Africa. Dating from the 1960s through 1980s, the approximately 300 leaflets, pamphlets, books, and newsletters offer sometimes scarce documentation of internationalist liberation movements such as the PAIGC in Guinea Bissau and Cape Verde, the Tupamaros in Uruguay, and the EFLNA in Eritrea. Of particular note is a small group of materials documenting Vega's participation in the 1974 Venceremos Brigade and a collection of clippings, newsletters, notes, fliers, conference material, and newspapers from various groups such as New England Action Research, Friends of the Filipino People, The Latin American Student Association, and the Ethiopian Students Union of North America. Some printed materials are cataloged and housed with the rare books collection.

Background on Carlos Vega

Carlos Vega

Carlos Vega

An Ecuadorian-born community activist, Carlos Vega moved to Holyoke, Massachusetts, with his family in 1955, settling in the city's "Flats" neighborhood, a working-class community then populated largely by Irish and French Canadians. As a child, Vega witnessed the end of the post-war economic boom and the downturn in Holyoke's fortunes as many of the factories that formed the city's lifeblood began to relocate to the U.S. South or Asia.

By the time he was 14, Vega found that the only job he could get was on the local tobacco farms where he first encountered the new influx of migrants, mostly from Puerto Rico. Driven by the dire economic situation on the island and the promise of agricultural employment extended by the U.S. Department of Labor, many of these migrants settled permanently in the Pioneer Valley, but they soon discovered that the economy here was little better than the economy they had left. Exacerbated by racism and rising urban decay, this newest wave of migrants were blamed for the downturn and found their hopes for upward mobility blocked.

Radicalized by the anti-colonial, antiwar, and Civil Rights movements of the late 1960s, Vega emerged as an important community organizer in the 1970s, working with Fair Share, New Unity, Urban Ministry, and other progressive organizations: anything that involved civic engagement and feeling for social justice. With a backdrop of riots, arson, and racial tension, these organizations focused on issues relevant to the Puerto Rican community of Holyoke, particularly voter education and registration, fair housing, education, employment, and safe streets.

Vega's impact on Holyoke ranged from involvement in the desegregation lawsuits against the city's schools in the 1970s to perhaps his most lasting legacy, Nueva Esperanza, a not-for-profit community development organization seeking to restore and maintain blighted buildings in the city and saving 30 buildings and developing space for small business and nearly 400 units of affordable housing. Two years after being diagnosed with brain cancer in 1995, Vega resigned as Executive Director, but remained active on the Board of Directors. He survived until April 2012.
