Last year, CNN produced the documentary series “Black in America.” The news network now plans to produce a two-part documentary of Latinos in the U.S.
Soledad O’Brien will host “Latino in America,” set to air in October… for Hispanic Heritage month. According to a story in Multichannel News, the documentary “will focus on the growing U.S. Hispanic population and the pertinent isues that face the community.” The first part will look into the lives of people nation-wide whose last name is “Garcia” and the second part will focus on how 4 different communities are dealing with the challenges of immigration, discrimination, disparities and cultural identity. The documentary will also feature Latino celebrities.
Let’s hope this documentary does a better job at painting an accurate and substantive picture of Latinos in America than NBC’s superficial attempts in early March of this year, with its “We the People” series.
