34th Hispanic Heritage Awards
October 8, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm EDT
The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) announced that the 34th Hispanic Heritage Awards, presented by Target for the ninth year, will be broadcast Friday, October 8 on PBS stations and stream on pbs.org and the PBS Video app. The historic program, which was created by the White House in 1988 to commemorate the establishment of Hispanic Heritage Month in America, is among the highest honors by Latinos for Latinos and supported by 40 national Hispanic-serving institutions and features top Latinx leaders being honored by top performers and personalities.
The Awards, modeled after last year’s PBS broadcast, will feature more intimately filmed performances and Honoree segments captured on location across the United States and Latin America. Last year’s program had the highest ratings and reached more people in the PBS Broadcasts’ history with Awardees including Bad Bunny, Selena Gomez, Linda Ronstadt, Jessica Alba, John Lewis, and our Farmworkers, with performances by Sebastian Yatra, Jessie Reyez, Sech, Calma Carmona, Flor de Toloache and a grand finale tribute to Linda Ronstadt anchored by The Mavericks featuring Latina vocalists: Joy Huerta of Jesse and Joy, Lupita Infante, La Marisoul of La Santa Cecilia, Gaby Moreno and Carla Morrison.
