Congress authorized President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim a Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968 in an effort to recognize the history, culture and contributions of Hispanic Americans, including Afro-Hispanics.
President Ronald Reagan expanded the celebration to a month in 1988, running Sept. 15 through Oct. 15.
