Collection: Latino and Hispanic American Stories

The Latino/Hispanic community represents a significant portion of the U.S. population and continues to grow. Its diverse members hail from a wide variety of countries of origin where the Spanish language is spoken. Whether community members identify as Latino, Latina, Latinx, Hispanic, Chicano, by nationality, by ethnicity, or otherwise, their stories are part of the American story. This audio story collection highlights the voices and experiences of Hispanic people in the U.S., including documented and undocumented immigrants, as well as people whose families have been U.S. citizens for generations. They capture cultural traditions like celebrating a quinceañera, accomplishments like working on the Mars rover or winning a prestigious scholarship, and emotions surrounding separation from or reunification with family members during the course of immigration. Listen to these stories for a sampling of Latino culture, history, and perspectives on identity and the American experience.
