Latinos take on bigger role in Obama inauguration

Presence reflects rising influence

WASHINGTON — Latinos are taking a more prominent role in President Obama’s second inauguration, from the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice swearing in the vice president to a star-studded celebration of Latino culture.

Eva Longoria, a cochairwoman for Obama’s campaign, hosted a salute to the president Sunday evening. Antonio Banderas, Rosario Dawson, Marc Anthony and other entertainers appeared in ‘‘Latino Inaugural 2013: In Performance at the Kennedy Center.’’ The lineup also included Jose Feliciano, Prince Royce, Frankie Negron, Rita Moreno, and Mario Lopez.
