Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 - October 15, 2019
Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15. President Lyndon Johnson began the observance in 1968. September 15 is significant because it is the date Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence from Spain. Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence on September 16 and September 18, respectively. This is an excellent time to learn about Hispanic-American history, literature, and multicultural traditions.
The national theme for HHM 2019 is “Hispanic Americans: A History of Serving our Nation.” Almost 20% of the United States’ population is Hispanic or Latinx origin, and have helped shape our country in remarkable ways.
