"Celebrando las Madres
y la Cultura"
Vol. 15, Issue 5,
This month's cover features a Mariachi and a colorful background showcasing Mexican artwork and folklore. May is the month of culture and heritage as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. Much like that same passion we should take pride in the diversity of cultures that our heritage represents. Also, let's celebrate our madrecitas May 9th in the U.S., and the 10th in Mexico. A reason to celebrate them twice that I'm sure they'll appreciate. Happy Mother's Day y Feliz día de las Madres.
We hope that you will read the great stories in the May issue related to Latina contributors.
