Please join our dialogue on Facebook
My hope is that the FB page will become a public forum for all of us who believe the time has come to re-conquer American history, so that the contributions of our Hispanic ancestors are properly recognized.
Although my series already is up to 37 parts, I hope to see your suggestions for the numerous parts that still need to be written, your comments on new articles as they are published and your participation on a new section that will soon be part of HiddenHispanicHeritage.com: An Online Hispanic History Timeline!
I'm hoping to involve my readers in building the mother of all history timelines - recognizing the many moments in American history when Latinos have made huge contributions to North American society, starting from April 2, 1513, when Juan Ponce de Leon discovered and named "La Florida."
Of course, the FB page also will give me an opportunity to share with you my plans for continuing to develop my series. I'll tell you where I plan to go and who I plan to interview in my continuing quest to reconnect Americans with their Hispanic roots.
I hope you join my cause by "liking" this FB page: http://www.facebook.com/HiddenHispanicHeritage
And then I hope you get your friends to like OUR cause.
