Dear Primos and friends:
If you missed the first four hours of Latino Americanos, please don’t miss the last two hours of the 6-hour documentary. It will air Tuesday, October 1st. It is excellent.
Latino Americanos successfully gives a broad overview of our very diverse population, sharing the emotional consequences experienced by Latinos from different parts of the US. Important historic points were made by the facts, which should help all Latinos/Hispanics to understand one another better. To most non-Hispanics it will surely be an eye-opener. A CD of Latino Americanos will be available, and materials for the classroom have been developed.
Congratulations to John Valadez and the other documentarians. They certainly did their homework!! They shared with us a more honest view of the Latinos experience in the United States, showing us to be a part of American history.
As more and more organizations, government and public agencies, universities, libraries, museums, cultural groups, non-profits, individuals, etc. etc. are informing the public of their activity and services to the Latino community, I am feeling less and less the need to include in Somos Primos some of the topics and areas which I have been attempting to cover since January 2000. Thankfully, we now have an abundance of outstanding informative websites, particularly on issues of current events, and, even better, they are set up to get the information out quickly, plus all the social networking is promoting wonderful genealogical connections.
Consequently, Somos Primos will be concentrating:
(1) more and more on sharing your personal stories and little known history.
(2) on including information about an event after it takes place, with photos and comments. Your personal stories and special events, whether a festival, an honoring event, or a family reunion, then become > digitized archived history.
You have life incidences that shaped you, amused you, taught you. Please write them down and share them. What you valued in your life is valuable. Your life mattered, share it for the benefit of all of us.
