Americans with darker skin colors have often faced discrimination in the United States. Hispanic Americans, like other minority groups, have had to fight to be treated fairly. Today, there are millions of Hispanics in the country, spread across every state of the nation. They are the fastest growing minority in the United States—but the fact that they are spread out makes them weaker as a group. Hispanics must work together to stand up for their rights. Learn about the Latino civil rights movement. Find out how Hispanic Americans are fighting for their rights!
