It’s Hispanic Heritage month and every year since 1968, we take a month to celebrate the anniversary of the independence of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. According to 2010 statistics, 17 percent of the American population are of Hispanic or Latino heritage. This year, do more than bop your head along to “Despacito” and celebrate the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the group’s heritage and culture.

We’ve compiled a list of things to do, see and watch to immerse yourself in the culture of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Watch:


Premiering in 2013, The Latino Americans was the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos. The six part series features interviews from nearly 100 Latinos, exploring the richness of a culture which has helped shape North America over the last 500-plus years and have become, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the U.S.
