Hispanic Heritage Month (2019)
First and foremost I’d like to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to come to visit my site. Hispanic Heritage month is perhaps one of the most anticipated months for me. Aside from giving me an excuse to celebrate our people and what we have accomplished, it serves as a reminder of what we must improve as well as the areas we’re underrepresented. On this Hispanic Heritage Month many television networks, radio stations, podcasts, newspapers, media, in general, celebrate Hispanics in politics, sports, television, radio, social movements, music, theater, science, and many areas. As an aspiring film critic, I thought it’d be best if I’d focus on shining the light on films done, starring or about Hispanics. I posted a tweet about this and was glad to see the overwhelming response to film requests. I won’t be able to watch all of them since I couldn’t find some of them online (mainly the smaller films that played at festivals). I’ll watch the movies requested this way I can have some content ready for September 15, which is the day Hispanic Heritage Month initiates.
