The North Las Vegas Library District will host a screening of “Latino Americans,” an award-winning PBS documentary film, on Thursday.

It will be followed by a scholarly discussion about early Latino American settlement and history up to 1880 with UNLV Adjunct Art History Instructor and Doctoral candidate Emmanuel Ortega Rodriguez.

The event will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the UNLV Barrick Museum on Maryland Parkway.

“Latino Americans” chronicles Latinos in the United States from the 16th century to present day.
