Latinx Heritage Month 2020: Home

Happy Latinx Heritage Month!

  • We have celebrated Latinx Heritage Month every September 15 to November 15 since 1988. We even have a regional connection: Illinois' then-Senator Paul Simon sponsored the legislation! 
  • Are you wondering why it's September 15 to October 15? Because so many countries in Latin America attained their independence during this month-long period! Check out National Hispanic Heritage Month's About page for more information.
  • Hispanic Heritage Month, the official page, offers lesson plans, art, and events.
  • Looking for more? We've got you covered! Check out these films and documentaries, and take a look at some of the books we had on display last year.
