Written by authors and NAHF Members Lorena Garza Gonzalez and Lisa Trevino Cummins, “INHERITANCE: Discovering the Richness of Latino Culture and Family” has been among Amazon’s top 10 hot new releases for books in the Hispanic category. Endorsed by some of our country’s most respected leaders including the Honorable Henry G. Cisneros and Secretary of State Hope Andrade, the authors share and reflect from their rich experiences that include time among immigrant families to work in the White House to recount stories of undaunted courage, faith, and valor.
“I know that the stories I’ve written are not mine alone, but are the stories shared by so many in our Latino community. I hope that this book will provide families an opportunity to reflect on their blessings and celebrate the inheritance from their own families,” shares Dr. Lorena G. Gonzalez.
“As our community strives and achieves success through education and business, it is important to be reminded of the rich values and lessons for which many in our families paid a significant price. They are the true heroes and heroines that I don’t want my children and their generation to miss,” notes Lisa Trevino Cummins.
