Did you know that more than 50 million Latinos call the U.S. home? To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, WTVI PBS Charlotte will air “Latino Americans,” a three-part documentary series that charts the evolution of Latino Americans from the 1500s to today, through imagery, interviews and personal stories – Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
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.
Don’t just watch Latino Americans on WTVI, become part of the online project. Share your experience on the national website and help us tell the complete story of Latino Americans. You can share your story by creating a short video and uploading to: http://www.pbs.org/latino-americans/en/mi-historia/
