Latino Americans: 500 Years of History and grantee list

Cultural Narrative: 

Latino Americans: 500 Years of History, produced by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA), is a nationwide public programming initiative that supports the exploration of the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape the United States over the last five centuries and who have become, with more than 50 million people, the country's largest minority group.

More than 200 grantees around the country —libraries, museums, state humanities councils, historical societies and other nonprofits selected through a competitive application process —are receiving funding, resources and support to host festivals, collect oral histories, facilitate informed discussions and hold other public events about Latino American history and culture between July 1, 2015, and July 1, 2016. All grantees will also host scholar-led viewing and discussion events that feature the documentary film "Latino Americans," supported by an NEH grant and created for PBS by the WETA public television station.
