America began observing Hispanic History Week in 1968 — 50 years ago! In 1988, President Reagan expanded from one week to one month. Now, we celebrate Hispanic History Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.
No matter what country in Latin America you’re from, Hispanic heritage is full of stories about brave, principled people who worked hard and put family first. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we reflect on those who came before us and made it possible to pursue the American Dream today.
Where are your roots? What are the things, and who are the people, that you’re celebrating during Hispanic Heritage Month? We want to learn your heritage story!
