Next week Thursday marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, which is observed from Sept. 15 until Oct. 15. This month serves to honor the cultures and contributions of the U.S. Latinx and Hispanic communities, recognizing how these communities have influenced American society.
Sept. 15 was chosen as the starting point for the commemoration to coincide with the independence day of five Hispanic countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, who all declared independence in 1821. Other Latin American countries also declared independence from Spain in mid-September, including Mexico which celebrates its independence Sept.16.
