Ken Burns, PBS and the Latino Body at War

Professor Maggie Rivas-Rodríguez “is credited with igniting a grass-roots effort to pressure famed documentary filmmaker Ken Burns to include Latinos” in his upcoming documentary The War. See Guillermo Contreras’ article, “UT Professor Has a Way of Getting Nation’s Ear.”

Prof. Rivas-Rodríguez
has also been involved in the “US Latinos and Latinas and World War II” project at UT, Austin. This important project seeks to document the stories of Latina and Latino participation in the armed services.
