Through poetry and non-fiction, Yes! We Are Latinos introduces middle and high school readers to the wide range of heritages and histories that can contribute to being Latino. Each chapter begins with a poem about a person who embodies the respective history followed by a sophisticated yet reader-friendly historical essay. These include indigenous roots, migrant farmworkers, immigration, the Spanish Civil War, Afro-Latino identity, Chinese and Japanese history in Latin America, and much more.
