Biography: historical, political & military

Continuing the successful publication of nonfiction anthologies about famous trailblazers throughout history, this fully-illustrated book under the Smithsonian imprimatur will celebrate 30 of the most influential Latinas/Latinos in history.

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. Charged with the task of telling the long, complicated relationship of Latinos in the U.S.--a relationship so long, it predates the country--the gallery offers an opportunity to reflect on the stories and experiences of Latinas and Latinos throughout the U.S. today. Nuestra America highlights the incredible contributions of the following:
