Make like these niños and learn more about La Raza with PBS’ epic, six-part documentary Latino Americans


The reenactments in Episode 1 were gorgeously shot but suffer from an overtly dramatic telenovela tone, and in the six hours there is no mention of the other, more recent Latino wave of immigrants: South Americans (mostly Venezuelans) who increase the existing group of “other” Latinos in the U.S.—those who come in all shapes, sizes and colors (not only brown). But the omissions don’t take anything away from Latino Americans, an epic journey showing how Latinos got rid of their “charming passivity”—as a segregationist once described them—to become the political and social force they are today.

In celebration, KLRN will host an in-studio short-version screening and panel discussion moderated by Elaine Ayala (Express-News), featuring local scholar Arturo Madrid, Latino Americans producer John Valadez, and State Senator Leticia Van de Putte.
