Annotation
The definitive tie-in to the CNN documentary series Latino in America, from former top CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O'Brien.

Following the smash-hit CNN documentary Black in America, Latino in America travels to small towns and big cities to illustrate how distinctly Latino cultures are becoming intricately woven into the broader American identity. As she reports the evolution of Latino America, Soledad O'Brien explores how tens of millions of Americans with roots in 21 different countries form a community called "Latino" and recalls her own upbringing and what she's learned about being a Latino in America.
