Michelle Rodriguez, Adrian Grenier And Linda Chave

Season 1, Episode 10 of 10

Michelle Rodriguez, Adrian Grenier and Linda Chavez all share Latin-American roots, yet each views identity differently. What does it mean to be Hispanic? The answer lies in the tangled histories of European, Native American and African peoples. Crisscrossing Mexico, Spain, the Caribbean and the Southwest, Dr. Gates reveals stories of ancestral Conquistadors, Indian rebels and "Crypto-Jews" (Spanish Jews who converted to Catholicism to survive the Inquisition, but continued to practice their religion in secret). See how the American experience has been shaped by people who were in the New World long before the Mayflower.
