National Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual celebration in the United States that recognizes the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans. Celebrated from September 15th to October 15th, the start date of the month is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In honor of this month, the Hopkins Press Journals division has put together a list of articles discussing many different facets of Hispanic life and culture: from poetry, music, and art to healthcare, history, and politics - all freely available through October 15.
