Oct. 25 was Larry Itliong’s birthday Born in 1913, he’s one of the reasons October is perfect for Filipino American History Month.
See why he was the man who merged civil rights and labor rights with the 1965 Delano Grape Strike. It was Itliong. Not Cesar Chavez.
What’s wrong with Filipino American History Month? The specific FAHM discussion starts around 2:11:00
