About PBS’ #MiHistoria:

Each week a new theme will challenge viewers to celebrate the people, ideas, and moments in history that are important to them. All memories using the hashtag #MiHistoria (and tag @PBS) will be aggregated onto PBS.org and shared across PBS platforms to help celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

Weekly themes will prompt online audiences to celebrate Latino culture through their own photos & videos. Campaign images, sourced by PBS, LPB, WORD Channel and AMDOC will be used to prompt this discussion.
