President Lyndon B. Johnson started Hispanic Heritage Month in 1968.
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from September 15th to October 15th. The purpose of the month-long celebration is to recognize the contributions and rich cultural heritage of Hispanic and Latino communities. During this time, various events and activities are organized to showcase the diversity and achievements of Hispanics in areas such as art, music, literature, and history. It is an opportunity to honor the significant impact Hispanics have had on shaping the United States.
