WGBY celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month with upcoming programming and a special event in our studios. This Friday at 10pm, the 2015 Hispanic Heritage Awards pays tribute to Latinos by Latinos with celebrated Hispanic artists. On October 15 at 5:30pm, WGBY hosts Herencia Latina as part of a celebration of our region’s Latino American Heritage. After a musical performance by Heshima Moja, we’ll screen “Episode IV: The New Latinos,” with Dr. Arlene Rodriguez, STCC Vice President of Student Affairs, facilitating the evening’s discussion.
PBS LearningMedia also offers hundreds of educational resources that you’ll find with a search of “Latinos,” and you can filter this search or do one of you own. Among resources, you’ll find the Latino Americans Collection with lesson plans, videos and classroom resources that invite teachers and students to explore the history, people and issues chronicled in the PBS series.
