Identify and describe some important Latin American figures in the United States
Who are some important figures/people in our society that are from Latin American backgrounds? For example, Sonia Maria Sotomayor is somebody you may have heard of, and has had some influence on our culture. Discuss why this is. Who else can you think of that influences our music, media, food, or government from a Latin American background? How can you see this changing in the years to come?
