Since the inception of the Smithsonian Latino Center in 1997, there has been a need for a permanent gallery that explores the contributions of Latinos in the United States. “In our founding document, there is a reference to the need for a gallery, but it’s been put on the back burner because of funds,” said Eduardo Díaz, the center’s director, to the Long Beach Post. But now, a $10 million donation from five siblings is making this much-needed initiative possible two decades later.
