The first major television documentary series to chronicle the history of Latinos will premiere on ThinkTV16 and CET over three consecutive Tuesdays – Sept. 17, Sept. 24 and Oct. 1.
The program, Latino Americans, follows the stories, struggles and triumphs of Latinos as well as how their stories have helped shape the United States and, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the U.S.
Latino Americans is led by Emmy Award-winning producer Adriana Bosch and narrated by Benjamin Bratt. Many of the featured interviews include leaders from the worlds of politics, business and pop culture — including Herman Badillo, Dolores Huerta, Gloria Estefan and Rita Moreno, among many others — as well as deeply personal portraits of lesser-known Latinos who lived through key chapters in American history.
Join us at 8pm Tuesday, Sept. 17, on CET and ThinkTV16 for the first installment of this six-hour series. Find more information online here: http://www.thinktv.org/onair/programs/featured/latino-americans or http://www.cetconnect.org/programming/latino-americans.
