How many Hispanic Americans do you see in this photo? If you hold that Canadians are also Americans, then the count would be four. If not, then three. The dolls and action figures are from right to left Olga Tanon, Hispanic Hot Toys action figure, R&D Doll's Susie, and YNU Group Mixis Rosa. Rosa is Hispanic-Canadian. Susie has Asian-Hispanic heritage. Olga Tanon is Puerto Rican.
Back in 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed National Hispanic Heritage Week as the week containing September 15th and September 16th. Congress extended that observance to a month in 1988. How many people knew that Hispanic Americans have an observance month? I confess, I recently did.
So, I will be posting photos of Hispanic dolls and action figures. If any readers have blogs in Spanish that you would like to share, please send a comment with the URL of that blog - or website. I will submit a post with the links.
