GROWING UP LATINA!
A CELEBRATION OF HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
ALL ABOUT HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th – October 15th every year. It is a time to recognize and celebrate the many contributions, culture, and extensive history of the American Latino community. What started out as just a week-long recognition back in 1968, has grown into an entire month as of 1988. Since then, the month has been celebrated nationwide with festivals, art shows, conferences, community gatherings, and much more!
The September 15th date is significant as it celebrates the start of a string of independence days for several Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua on September 15 – Mexico on September 16th – and Chile on September 18th. Also included are holidays that recognize Hispanic contributions such as the Virgin Islands-Puerto Rico Friendship Day which is celebrated in the US Virgin Islands the second Monday in October.
Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month I will be highlighting individuals who have made great contributions in their chosen profession and the community at large.
