Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with NBC4

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with NBC4”

The Law Library of Congress has compiled guides to commemorative observations, including a comprehensive inventory of the Public Laws, Presidential Proclamations and congressional resolutions related to Hispanic American Heritage Month.

Join NBC4 as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, honoring the culture and traditions of Americans whose ancestry runs through Spain, Mexico or the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Twenty years later, in 1988 it expanded to dedicate a whole four weeks for the celebration of being Hispanic.

September 15 is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence during this period.

During that month, NBC4 is showing on-air vignettes illustrating the impact that Hispanic Americans have had on our region.

"This month-long celebration recognizes the important contributions made by residents of Hispanic descent to all aspects of American life, including leadership in public service, business, the arts, education, and civil rights".

The celebration of the culture and contributions of Hispanic people in the USA runs through October 15. This represents a significant increase from 2000, which registered the Hispanic population at 35 million, or 13 percent of the USA population.

Nearly a fifth of the total USA population is Hispanic, according to the Pew Research Center. At a population of 57 million, they are the second-fastest growing racial or ethnic group behind Asians.

The Chamber says the Hispanic population has more than doubled in both Benton and Washington counties over the last decade.

Of that population, around two-thirds, or 35.3 million, are people of Mexican origin.
