With 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, there are countless talented, creative, and unique individuals of Hispanic origin to celebrate!
This Hispanic Heritage Month, we want to shine a light on some of the wonderful Hispanic content creators gracing our social media feeds, but first, let’s learn a little more about Hispanic Heritage Month…
National Hispanic Heritage Month is annually celebrated from September 15 to October 15 in celebration of the diverse and rich histories, cultures, and contributions of the Hispanic community in the United States. The term Hispanic is used to refer to anyone with Spanish, Mexican, Caribbean, Central, or South American heritage.
This period of recognition and celebration aligns with several Latin American countries’ independence days and has been celebrated since 1968 when President Lyndon B. Johnson started Hispanic Heritage Week, which was since extended to a period of 30 days by America’s 40th President, Ronald Reagan.
