Tonight on PBS 6: "Latino Americans"

Posted By on Tue, Sep 17, 2013 at 4:00 PM

My colleagues over at Arizona Public Media are presenting the first part of Latino Americans, a six-episode documentary about the experience of Latinos in the Americas. From AZPM:


This six-part documentary chronicles the lives and experiences of Latinos in the United States from 1500 to the 21st century. Through its people, politics and culture, Latino Americans tells the story of early settlement, conquest and immigration; of tradition and reinvention; of anguish and celebration; and of the gradual construction of a new American identity from diverse sources that connects and empowers millions of people today. Narrated by actor Benjamin Bratt, the series utilizes the accounts of historical figures and events as well as present-day interviews with nearly 100 Latinos — from best-selling authors, entrepreneurs and pop cultural celebrities to political leaders and everyday people, as well as historians and other experts.

It airs at 8 p.m. tonight and repeats at 2 p.m. on Friday.
