In early February, the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA) announced their plan to bring a film screening and discussion program on the history of Latinos in America to 200 libraries and cultural institutions across the nation. As part of a new NEH initiative, The Common Good: Humanities in the Public Square – is offering grants of $3,000 to $10,000 to foster discussion about the history of Latinos in the United States. This project will feature an award winning six- part documentary series created for PBS titled, Latino Americans: 500 Years of History.
