Over 50 million Latinos live in the United States, and it's estimated that by 2050 one in three of the US population will be Hispanic.

Bordas includes the voices and experiences of other distinguished Latino leaders and vivid dichos (traditional sayings) that illustrate positive aspects of the Latino culture. This unprecedented book illustrates powerful and distinctive lessons that will inform leaders of every background.
