Learn about Hispanic Heritage Month


It started as a week long celebration under President L B Johnson, but it was under President Reagan that National Hispanic Heritage was extended to a month.
It kicks off on September 15 because this is Independence day for most all Central American countries. Tomorrow is Mexican Independence day, el 16 de septiembre.
National Hispanic Heritage Month goes for 31 days and covers Columbus Day – el Día de la Raza (race, ie…ethnicity) el 12 de octubre.


Look for celebrations in your area, notice news reports, highlights of famous Hispanics, history events and foods from around the Latin world.


You may enjoy the documentary ´Project ñ’, listening to some Latin tunes, or trying various restaurants in your area. Look for Cuban, Mexican, Peruvian, Argentinean, etc…




Herencia – Heritage
La Raza – the race
el orgullo – pride


Aquí puedes ver la página web de Univisión. Contiene mucha información, en español, sobre personas, la historia, etc…

Disfruta del mes.  – Enjoy the month


Gracias y hasta mañana,
