Martes de NPR: History of Latinos on TV

You know we’re in the middle of Hispanic Heritage Month when even NPR’s homepage features Ricky Ricardo, Dora La Exploradora, and Salma Hayek…plus a front page feauture on Obama and Immigration. Nice going, NPR!

From Npr.org, Dora and Salma, plus a great link to the history of Hispanics on TV.

Check out the page today and browse through the history of Latinos on TV link, “From Ricky Ricardo to Dora.”

Está muy interesante, if you like these sorts of things. They did a good job of recapping the most popular latinos on TV, from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. Aunque no mencionaron las Spanish TV Networks como Telemundo y Univision. (That’s another article, I guess.)

I especially enjoyed the Jackie Kennedy video of her tv spot in Spanish trying to get the Latino vote way back in 1960.

Here’s the video link. Enjoy!
