Nuestra America : 30 Inspiring Latinas/Latinos Who Have Shaped the United States Hardback

Illustrated by Gloria Felix



As the topic of immigration continues to dominate headlines, it becomes more important to educate young readers on the history of other cultures, specifically the incredible contributions made by Latinos in America.

The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History will open a permanent exhibit on influential Latinos in 2021.
