This has been a whirlwind election season. It's a unique moment in history, peppered with firsts, and it means different things to different people. Ever since the Democratic and Republican conventions, we've been asking politicians, artists, writers, scientists, thinkers, and theologians to take a step back and put this election, and campaign season, in context. It's part of our on-going series, "This American Moment."

Today, Raul Yzaguirre joins us. He is a civil rights leader, and the former president of the National Council of La Raza. We'll ask him what's at stake in this election, and whether he thinks the candidates have done enough to get the attention of Latino voters.

And, as always, we want to hear from you, too. What does this American moment mean to you?
