Fuera de las Sombras
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15, and was enacted in 1988 on the anniversary of the independence of several Latin American nations: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. In appreciation of this annual observance, one of our research database providers, Gale, is highlighting the military contributions of Hispanic Americans with its Fuera de las Sombras (Out of the Shadows) program. Click here to view the program guide, designed to help you explore these contributions using two of the Gale databases: Biography in Context and U.S. History in Context. You can access both databases in the library or by using your Inglewood Library Card information.
We invite you to explore our unique space with interactive art installations and programming. These three art installations embrace our diverse community while inspiring wonder and contemplation.
