Jul 07 2022

From September 15 to October 15 each year, National Hispanic Heritage Month aims to honor the contributions that Hispanic Americans have made to society. Their achievements have come in the business, politics, entertainment, and many other areas. The best Hispanic Heritage Month speakers for 2022 still have availability both virtually and in-person, making them the perfect last-minute add for your event calendar.


Linda Alvarado


Alvarado made history as the first Hispanic to own a Major League Baseball franchise. Her position as a Colorado Rockies owner is so important because it was the first time a woman participated in an ownership offer for an MLB team. As a successful entrepreneur, Alvarado has raised the bar, and her achievements have given minorities and women more opportunities to pursue new fields. Numerous achievement awards have been given to her for her leadership in corporate, civic, and charity groups.


Diane Guerrero


Actress Diane Guerrero is well-known for her appearances on the popular television shows Orange Is the New Black, Jane the Virgin, Doom Patrol, and Blast Beat. She is a human rights activist, the author of two books, and the daughter of Colombian immigrants. Most recently, she served as host and executive producer of the NPR program, Yeah No, I'm Not OK, which featured frank discussions of mental health concerns affecting the BIPOC community. Her popular book has made her one of the best Hispanic Heritage Month speakers. In the Country We Love: My Family Divided, Guerrero’s memoir of her parents’ detention and deportation, was published in 2016.


Cheech Marin


In the 1970s and 1980s, Marin appeared in several comedy albums and full-length comedies as a member of the wildly popular comedy duo Cheech & Chong. While co-writing and acting in all seven of their movies alongside Marin, Tommy Chong directed four of their films. Marin is an art collector, actor, director, writer, musician, and humanitarian. The films starring Cheech and Chong are still well known and adored, making Marin a true cultural icon. Marin is now regarded as a leading proponent of Chicano art.  He began curating what is now regarded as the best private collection of Chicano art in the mid-1980s. Marin has since partnered with The City of Riverside and the Riverside Art Museum to establish The Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture, and Industry, furthering his mission to make Chicano art accessible to a wider audience.
