"Knowing your cultural narrative is essential to understanding yourself. The history of Latinos in the U.S. is a great American history, and you can't truly understand our nation without it. The arts help us understand our past, put the present in context and anticipate the future. That's why the Smithsonian Latino Center is so important."
