Summary:People of Hispanic origin make up a rapidly growing socioeconomic sector in the U.S. Spanish is heard-and seen-almost everywhere; on thousands of TV channels and radio stations, not to mention in the day-to-day life of cities, towns, and rural areas across the nation. This program explores useful Spanish vocabulary and phrases as it profiles Americans for whom Spanish is the primary language. Viewers become familiar with members of a local pop group in San Antonio, Texas, who are of Mexican descent, and a community organizer in New York City whose Puerto Rican ancestry informs his work.
