A Taste of Hispanic Heritage

National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the contributions of culture and history by American citizens of Hispanic descent. According to the National Hispanic Heritage Month website, observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to start on September 15 and end on October 15.
