Latino Americans

Airing Wednesdays at 11 p.m. beginning Sept. 22 (6 Parts)

LATINO AMERICANS, a landmark six-hour documentary series narrated by actor Benjamin Bratt,air on Southern Oregon PBS Wednesdays in September. LATINO AMERICANS is the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have for the past 500-plus years helped shape what is today the United States and have become, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the U.S.

LATINO AMERICANS is led by Emmy Award-winning series producer Adriana Bosch anddocuments the evolution of a new “Latino American” identity from the 1500s to the present day, featuring interviews with close to 100 Latinos from the worlds of politics, business and pop culture — including Herman Badillo, Dolores Huerta, Gloria Estefan and Rita Moreno — as well as deeply personal portraits of lesser-known Latinos who lived through key chapters in American history.
