Life & Grind (CW17)'s celebration of Jax Hispanic Heritage Month will be a week-long string of events and festivities, all of which our platform and network has decided to promote with the intention of linking together positive, progressive, and collectively powerful Hispanic and Caribbean entrepreneurs. Our goal is to ultimately develop a greater, more consistent platform for us all to network, build and grow a better independent entertainment industry here in northeast Florida/southeast Georgia that supports our minority business community and local minority resident community, too, while having a little fun in the process. Events will feature a mix of Hispanic and Caribbean history, foklore, art, dance, food, community-related intiatives, music like classic 90s Dancehall & Top 40 Caribbean-Inspired Hip Hop/R&B, along with your favorite Reggae, Soca, Reggaeton, Latin, and MORE, all for the benefit of Caribbean and Hispanic community of residents, businesses, and organizations, and designed to cater to the local Caribbean and Hispanic community while stimulating investment in Hispanic & Caribbean business, arts, education, and non-profit organizations based in the area.

>>Jax’s 1st and ONLY cable reality TV series Life & Grind: Duval will be taping for CW17/BounceTV/DeKalb-Comcast 25

Hispanic Heritage Month Facts: (info courtesy Es Mi Vida - COJ.net; http://www.coj.net/esmivida.aspx)

September 15 became the starting point for the celebration as it is the anniversary of independence for Five Latin American countries:

  • September 15 - Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua
  • September 16 - Mexico
  • September 18 - Chile
  • September 21 - Belize

La Semana de la Herencia Hispana fue creada por el Presidente Lyndon B. Johnson. Luego fue ampliada para abarcar un período de 30 días y convertida en ley el 17 de agosto de 1988 por el Presidente Ronald Reagan.

15 De Septiembre se convirtió en el punto de partida para la celebración como es el aniversario de la independencia de cinco países de América Latina:

  • 15 De Septiembre - Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua
  • 16 De Septiembre - México
  • 18 De Septiembre - Chile
  • 21 De Septiembre – Belice
