Tools, Links, and Useful Ideas for Celebrating Hispanic Heritage
National Hispanic Heritage Month, which takes place from September 15 to October 15 every year, is a time to recognize and celebrate the many contributions, diverse cultures, and extensive histories of the American Latino community. Hispanic influences are tightly knit in the fabric of American life—think music, food, art, cinema, politics, literature, and so much more. This year the theme of the celebration is Be Proud of Your Past and Embrace the Future.
