'Nuestra Historia' - Exploring the Latino Contribution to American History

Danny Vargas and Estuardo Rodriguez speak to the future of a new National Museum of the American Latino.

Editor’s note: Mr Vargas is board Chair President and Mr. Rodriguez staff President and CEO.

Spanning more than five hundred years and twenty four countries, there’s no easy way to encapsulate the unique scope of Latino American history. But for Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino President Estuardo Rodriguez, and Chairman of the Board Danny Vargas, that’s all the more reason to add a dynamic new museum to the National Mall in Washington D.C.

Since 1996, when a special task force found that Latinos were the most under-represented group in within the Smithsonian, many have lobbied to include Latino history within this national institution. Most recently the Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino has pushed congress to better understand, embrace and fund the construction of an entirely new museum that spotlights the remarkably broad contributions Latinos have made to American history.

After the recent overwhelming passage of HR 2024, Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino are now working to pass S1267, the final piece of legislation that would bring the new museum unto being.  With a growing list of supporting corporate, non-profit and educational partnerships, the project has never been closer to becoming a reality.
