Comment: PBS Documentary On Latino Americans


In the Fall of 2013, PBS is set to air a six hour documentary series on the history of Latino Americans. "It is the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape the United States over the last 500-plus years and have become, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the US… The story includes expansionism, Manifest Destiny, the Wild West, multiple wars (Mexican-American, Spanish-American, World War II), the rise of organized labor, the Great Depression, the post WWII boom, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, globalization, and the effects of multiple kinds of technologies - from the railroad and barbed wire to the internet and satellite television."

We hope that the documentary helps demonstrate to the public at large that Latino immigration is an integral part of the American story, and that it helps counter the stereotypes propagated by the anti-immigrationists. Share your thoughts by writing to editor@ilw.com.
