Commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month at Howard

Hispanic students at Howard celebrate their heritage and share why it is significant to them.

Hispanic Heritage Month is a month-long celebration dedicated to honoring and recognizing Hispanic Americans and their contributions to the United States. According to the U.S. Census, 63.7 million Hispanics reside in America, and an estimated 62 percent of the U.S. population speaks Spanish.

 Hispanic American influence can be observed all over, especially in heavily populated states like California, Texas, Florida and New York. On Howard’s campus, students with different Hispanic origins – Mexico, South and Central America, the Caribbean and beyond – travel to the Mecca to join the Bison community. This Hispanic Heritage Month, The Hilltop asked how the university’s Hispanic community celebrates and what the month of pride means to them.
