In "My Americas," Mexican American hosts Roberto Alcaraz and Leticia V©Łsquez travel into the rich cultural and spiritual life of Latin America in search of their heritage. In this program, Roberto travels to Oaxaca to discover one of Mexico's most defining and colorful feasts, celebrated every year on November 2nd. His search takes him from markets to the pre-Columbian ruins of Monte Alb©Łn and Mitla, an ornate Dominican church, and to the home of a Zapotec family of rug weavers. He learns about the family's art, their daily struggles, their traditions, and the importance of Day of the Dead in their life. Roberto ends his adventure with a midnight stroll in a candlelit cemetery where families remember their deceased loved ones.
