To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, I’m giving away a LULAC prize pack on my dad blog. The prize pack consists of a $25 gift card to TheLatinProducts.com and a Diversity On Demand tote bag. National Hispanic Heritage Month actually runs from September 15th to October 15th. Odd, right? But that’s because September 15th is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries like Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16th and September 18th, respectively. Columbus Day (Día de la Raza), which is on October 12th, is also celebrated during Hispanic Heritage Month.
My giveaway is sponsored by top cable companies and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, cable providers are highlighting compelling Hispanic figures and events on their On-Demand service. The Hispanic-themed programming represents a broad industry effort to provide digital cable customers convenient access to relevant, factual and entertaining Hispanic and Latino television shows and movies all month long.
Hispanic Heritage Month On Demand Program Highlights
A Storied Past
Gain a new understanding of historical events through real life stories. The dramatic account of Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s inspiring and thrilling youthful motorcycle trek across Latin America traces the origins of his revolutionary spirit.
See award-winning novels brought to life on film to interpret history and culture. While characters such as Cesar and Nestor Castillo, brothers and aspiring musicians who flee from Cuba to America in the hopes of reviving their failed musical careers, may be fictional, their stories are reflective of today’s challenges.
Live and Laugh
Kings of Latin Comedy George Lopez, Cheech Marin, Joey Medina, Alex Reymundo and Paul Rodriguez joke about unique cultural oddities, while Carlos Mencia helps break down barriers by addressing ethnic stereotypes, racism and the inability to laugh at oneself.
Hispanic Hearth and Home
Complete the cultural immersion with a close look at food. Simmer awhile with chef Aaron Sanchez, owner of New York’s Centrico Restaurant and Tacombi, who preps dishes with people he admires and takes viewers on visits to iconic spots in the Big Apple.
