    In the Public Interest Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is a period from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 when the U.S. recognizes the history, culture and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans. The holiday started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under Texas State’s own President Lyndon B. Johnson and was later expanded into a month by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. It was officially enacted into law that same year in August. The holiday coincides with the anniversary of Independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile also celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and 18.

Celebrate the holiday with In the Public Interest Hosts DaLyah Jones and Jacquelyn Carter as they discuss the difference between Hispanic and Latinx and more.
