‘Latino American’ Series Premiere

Latino American series – narrated by Benjamin Bratt  – premieres tonight at 8 pm ET on PBS.

Tonight’s episodes are War and Peace – spanning the period from 1500-1880, as the first Spanish explorers enter North America, the U.S. expands into territories in the Southwest that had been home to Native Americans and English and Spanish colonies, and as the Mexican-American War strips Mexico of half its territories by 1848 – and Empire of Dreams – spanning the period  from 1880-1942, as widespread immigration to the U.S. from Latin countries begins, first with a small group from Cuba, then a larger one from Mexico.
