Latino Americans – a new PBS series | San Jose, CA | Tech Museum | Sept 9th, 2013

LATINO AMERICANS is the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape North America over the last 500-plus years and have become, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the U.S. The changing and yet repeating context of American history provides a backdrop for the drama of individual lives. It is a story of immigration and redemption, of anguish and celebration, of the gradual construction of a new American identity that connects and empowers millions of people today.

Followed by Q & A with a special guest to be announced

Latino Americans | PBS

See on Scoop.itCommunity Village Daily

Latino Americans is a landmark three-part, six-hour documentary series that is set to air nationally on PBS in the fall of 2013.

Community Village‘s insight:

In just watching the teaser of 3 minutes and twenty-three seconds I can say:

Bilingualism messes with the mind of white supremacists.

A white supremacist does not want to acknowledge that bilingual people are twice as knowledgeable in the language department.

A white supremacist will not admit that it’s better to know two or more languages.

A white supremacist thinks their own “white” language is the best language and they think it’s the only valid language.

White supremacy seeks to devalue and disrespect any cultural aspects outside of white culture.
