This is a continuation of the twenty years, 2000-2020 online effort of Somos Primos, to encourage all Hispanics and Latinos to gather and share their family stories. Somos Primos was available as a print quarterly for ten years prior to the online editions. Somos Primos is freely accessible online.

This new companion website is dedicated to seeking out and sharing the many outstanding historic and diverse contributions of Hispanics. The goal is to counteract the Anti-Spanish Black Legend which circulated for 500 years throughout the world.
