Set the DVR! 6-Hour LATINO AMERICANS Comes to PBS

The PBS SERIES "LATIN AMERICANS" will tell the EXPERIENCE OF LATINOS IN THE UNITED STATES DURING THE LAST 200 YEARS, coming FALL OF 2013.

LATINO AMERICANS narrate the arrival of millions of people from 1980 to the twenty-first century, the greatest migration of people in the recent history of the United States. The reasons for their arrival were many: from riots and civil wars, the impact of U.S. policies during the Cold War, and the consequences of globalization and free trade in North America (NAFTA). Many immigrants came to America seeking a better life for their families, pursuing the American dream.
The series will also examine the consequences of strengthening the borders, anti-bilingualism and the efforts by declaring illegal immigration a felony. But during the debate on immigration, the powerful voice of Latinos in the second, third and fourth generation rose to reach positions of power and influence, changing the American political and economic framework, and meeting at a new phenomenon: the concept of " Latin-American.

Latinos give PBS a history lesson

"After initially insisting that he wouldn't make any changes, Burns said last week that he would re-edit the film to add stories about Hispanic soldiers -- not as an addendum as was suggested earlier in a lame compromise, but as part of the film itself."
