October is Filipino American History month, but then you know why I like to flip it and say "American Filipino." I don't mean to make you get new stationary and business cards, but I want to both honor those born-here. And those who are just here. It's an inclusive, unifying phrase. Because what unites are the transgressions we've all experienced. It's even more frustrating when some of our own people "don't get it," and think I'm picking a fight. I'm not. I'm trying to pick us up to go forward.
See me Thursday, Oct. 9, at 6p. It’s free. Different programs. But all about Filipinos in San Francisco. Part of The Alvarado Project’s “Compositions” exhibit, featuring the photographs of Ricardo Alvarado.
