I'm a fan of Ken Burns' work but was disappointed with the under-representation of Latinos in his WWII doc.  Now that he's been greenlit to make a doc about the Vietnam War, I wonder what's the best way to ensure that he includes Latino stories in it?  Does anyone know who at PBS or Ken Burns' production company would someone write to express hope that Latinos are well-represented in Ken Burns' vietnam doc?  Thanks!See More
