Hispanic Heritage Month: La Identidad is a celebration of Latiné achievement in the Chicano and Hispanic American Movement from the 1900s to the present day.

During this session, you’ll trace how the Chicano movement brought greater publicity to Hispanic civil rights, led by leaders like Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, Rodolfo Corky Gonzalez, Jovita Idar, and many more.

Plus, you’ll delve into the importance of Los Angeles’ Hispanic community, including stunning live-streamed views of the famed Olvera Street and one of the oldest murals in the country by a Hispanic artist.

Additionally, this virtual Hispanic Heritage Month event focuses on amplifying the story of Latiné achievement in Hollywood, from stars like Desi Arnaz, Cheech Marin, Zoe Saldana, and Eva Longoria. We’ll have fun with trivia focused on the impact of telling Latiné stories on United States television.

Your experience will be led by two knowledgeable and personable in-studio guides, as well as one on-location guide. Specifically, your team will virtually travel to Los Angeles, the largest Hispanic community in the country — nearly 1 in 10 Hispanic people in the United States live in Los Angeles.

Best of all, this experience is NOT a lecture. Instead, your interactive session will engage your group as you honor the cultures and contributions of Hispanic people throughout American history.

The Information in the Hispanic Heritage Virtual Event

What does Latiné mean?

The term Latiné is a gender-neutral adjective used to describe something or someone from Latin American countries. For instance, you might say “Latiné communities” instead of “Latino communities” to be more inclusive. If you’ve seen the term Latinx (used in our experience last year), Latinx is a gender neutral version of Latino and Latina. However, in Spanish, x has a different meaning than in English, so Latiné is actually the appropriate linguistic usage.

What history is in this experience?

First, our historians spend over 300 hours each year updating the historical information shared during this event. They deeply research the impact of the Latiné population on America’s history, drawing on primary sources and research. Then, they put this this information into context, through the lens of modern-day life.

During this session, your team will learn about the influence of Latiné leaders and movie stars on American history and culture. Additionally, this session delves into the lasting impact of Latin representation in cinema.

What do the live-streaming guides show?

The live-streaming guide will take your team on a virtual adventure to historic sites important to Hispanic and Latinx Heritage. Specifically, you’ll visit Olvera Street in Los Angeles, known as the “birthplace of los Angeles.”

Is the history accurate?

With three historians on staff, Unexpected Virtual Tours places a high priority on historical accuracy. Each of our team members works hard to ensure that the historical information we share is accurate.

As a best practice, we use original source documents to research the topics shared during your this event. For example, we examine newspapers, diary entries, speeches, and more.
