Unknown Latino History

An amazing book, being Latino so much I didn't know about our history. However, all should read this book as it is America's history and all our culture. This is a must read for all to gain a better understanding of Latins and their contributions to the growth of this country.

On the shoulders of giants

Latino Americans encompasses all Latin nations that contribute and are representative of these United States. It’s amazing how the struggle for racial equity continues!
I recommended this book to my brother and will most likely share it with my friends. Ray Suarez really captured the hero essence of the people who even when faced with discrimination stood up for what they believed and may made a more perfect union. The struggle is not over but the challenges will be faced bravely!
