It’s a Filipino American story that says a lot about us then and now. RSVP to attend an online discussion with the filmmaker Celine Parrenas Shimizu,family members of Cecilia “Celine” Navarro, FANHS founder Dorothy Cordova and others. I’m moderating, so RSVP now for this FILIPINO AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH capper.
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.
