From the founding of St. Augustine, Florida, in 1565, American Latinos have influenced US culture, politics, and economics. This book presents an overview of the Latino journey as documented in the experiences of five individuals whose lives trace major historical developments from the early 19th century to today. They include exiled Cuban priest Félix Varela, Mexican American author María Amparo Ruíz de Burton, Puerto Rican historian and collector Arturo Schomburg, Guatemalan civil rights organizer Luiza Moreno, and Mexican American politician Edward Roybal. Their unique and valuable contributions have helped shape our nation.
