Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with WGBH
Actor Benjamin Bratt narrates this landmark six-hour series, the first major television documentary series to chronicle the rich and varied history of Latinos, who have for the past 500-plus years helped shape what is today the United States and have become the country’s largest minority group.
Survey the history of the Latino people, from the first Spanish explorers to enter North America, to the Mexican-American War. Learn how Latino Americans serve their country in WWII, yet still face discrimination at home. And review the years when Puerto Rican, Cuban and Dominicans seek economic opportunities in the U.S.
