  1. Lowriders director hopes film 'shows a different side of who Latinos are in the States'

    April 25, 2017 By C. Molly Smith In Lowriders, an intergenerational drama set in East Los Angeles, a gifted teenage street artist, Danny (Gabriel Chavarria), is torn between his father, Miguel (Demian Bichir), and ex-con brother Ghost (Theo Rossi) as they square off in a lowrider competition. Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) stars as Danny’s love interest, and Eva Longoria plays Miguel’s wife. “I hope that the film shows a different side of who Latinos are in the States,” Peruvian director Ricardo de Montreuil (Máncora) says, “and that people understand that lowriders should be considered part of American folklore, such as jazz...
  2. If you build it, they will come: New evidence on Latino families’ use of early care and education

    April 25, 2017 By Todd Grindal There is widespread consensus that high quality pre-kindergarten programs can provide sizable benefits for young children and their families. For Hispanic[1] families the positive effects of pre-kindergarten on children’s school readiness outcomes appear to be even stronger. Despite these benefits, prior studies have found that Hispanic children consistently participate in early care and education (ECE) programs at substantially lower rates than their non-Hispanic peers. Some researchers have interpreted these patterns as reflecting either a limited supply of accessible and affordable care, and/or that Hispanic families have a cultural preference for either not placing their...

Following in the footsteps of musical TV series like Empire and Nashville, the network will unveil the first-ever musical series on U.S. Spanish-language television in War of Idols (Guerra de Idolos).

  6. Energetic and Passionate Spanish Adaptation of IN THE HEIGHTS Makes Its U.S. Premiere At GALA Hispanic Theatre

    April 23, 2017 By Vanessa Michaud Despite having previously seen two productions of IN THE HEIGHTS, I was extremely excited to see this particular adaptation. As a Cuban-American and fluent Spanish-speaker, I already felt highly connected to the musical with its strong roots in Hispanic culture, and seeing the U.S. premiere of a Spanish-language adaptation seemed almost necessary. It truly did not disappoint. With a dynamic cast, memorable songs, and an intimate setting, GALA Hispanic Theater's Spanish-language adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's IN gave a louder voice to a musical treasure that continues to stress the importance of family, whoever that...
  7. Latina Reporters Highlight the Importance of Bilingualism in Journalism

    April 21, 2017 By Camille Garcia A journalist’s duty is to use facts and first-hand experiences to tell stories of communities and the people in them. A key and rather obvious aspect of that charge is language. What happens when reporters don’t know a major language of the communities they cover? “The immigrant stories, the stories of our parents, the stories that we live and that we are able to report on would not be possible or would not be as easy to report if we only spoke one language,” said Joy Díaz, producer of the Texas Standard, a radio...
  8. Hispanic Men Often Put Off Medical Care, Bringing Bigger Trouble

    April 22, 2017 By Michael Anft Peter Uribe left Chile at 21 with his wife and 2-year-old daughter, landing in Baltimore and finding steady work in construction. His social life revolved around futbol, playing "six or seven nights a week in soccer tournaments," he says. A couple of years after his arrival, he broke his foot during a game and afraid of the cost, didn't seek medical care. "Some of my family warned me that if I went to the hospital and couldn't pay the bill, I'd get a bad credit record," says Uribe, 41, who made about $300 a...

"Latino Mix," a radio station playing a “blend of today’s Top 40 and Latin Rhythmic hits” has debuted in San Antonio.

  10. Census: Half of Hispanics identify as 'some other race'

    April 21, 2017 By Paul Bedard Nearly half of self-described Hispanics and Latinos do not identify with the Census category "Hispanic or Latino," with a growing number instead choosing "some other race" when filling out the critically important forms, according to the Census Bureau. In a report that heralds encouraging results in a test of new identifying terms, the Census said that 43.5 percent of "self-reported Hispanics did not report belonging to any federally recognized race group." In fact, "some other race" has become the third largest race in Census calculations, driven by the surge in Hispanics who chose the...

How come some of the people shown on the left don't look Hispanic?

Hispanic or Latino is not a race.   There are Latinos of many different races and physical characteristics.  For more information see our FAQ article, Why doesn't the census include Hispanic as a race?, and the Latino Blog post Let's Stop Segmenting People by Race!
