“[I]t is fundamentally wrong to exclude the Latino experience on a subject of the magnitude of World War II, especially in a high-profile, publicly supported project like The War,” says Eduardo Díaz, executive director of the National Hispanic Cultural Center, in an Albuquerque Journal report on the controversy over Ken Burns’ forthcoming PBS series. In an editorial published today, the Journal calls on KNME to drop Burns’ documentary from its schedule and highlight local programs on New Mexico’s WWII veterans.
