Texas officials to announce the creation of the Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas

LatinaLista — On Wednesday, April 30, a historic announcement will be made in San Antonio, Texas.
At that time, Texas Tejano.com, along with, Texas state officials and San Antonio community leaders, will launch an initiative to create the Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas.
It is the first center of its kind in the state to honor the history and accomplishments of Tejanos and Hispanic contributions to the Lone Star State. The center will be built in San Antonio.

José Antonio Navarro (1795-1871) was the most influential Tejano of his generation. He championed Texas independence from Mexico, then fought for the rights of Tejanos as citizens of the Republic of Texas and the United States.
At the launch, organizers will officially start recruiting people to help with the project and solicit ideas to make the Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas not just a reality, but a premier facility that honors and remembers the important role Hispanics played in the formation of Texas.
The announcement will be on April 30, 2008 at 5:30 p.m. at the San Fernando Cathedral’s City Centre Cafe.
