My Emil Amok’s Takeout talks to Professor Daniel Phil Gonzales about David Fagen, the African American Buffalo Solider who deserted during the U.S.-Philippine War to become a Filipino “insurrecto.”
I say goodbye to Corky here as I read the piece from the AALDEF blog.
Then, listen to the 2017 conversation where Corky talks about his life and why the Transcontinental Railroad picture meant so much to him.
At the end, he gets emotional about his friend, historian Philip Choy who taught Chinese American history at San Francisco State University.
It’s a revealing moment in a conversation that shows Corky, the person, the man behind the lens, who at times was invisible to us all as he stalked the best shot at Asian American events.
It’s one of the few times we took the time to really talk to each other.
It’s my “all-in-one” podcast tribute to Corky.
Emil Amok’s Takeout is Emil Guillermo’s Take on the News, Life and anything that strikes him from his American Filipino Asian perspective.
Watch his interview here with Prof. E.J. Ramos David on Colonial Mentality. But also hear him rant on Stephen Miller, the White House’s lax lockdown, Mother’s Day and Other things…..
See Emil’s column’s on the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund website!
