LATINO AMERICANS is a landmark six-hour documentary premiering on 9/17 on PBS at 8pm ET and in Spanish on Vme TV on 9/18 10pm ET. It is the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos. The docu-series feature the stories of immigration and redemption, of anguish and celebration, and chronicles everything from the Manifest Destiny, the Wild West, Mexican-American, Spanish-American, World War II, the rise of organized labor, the Great Depression, the post WWII boom, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement to globalization, and much more. Narrated by Benjamin Bratt, the teaser trailer and episode videos are beautiful, powerful and touching.
