Emil Guillermo is Emil Amok–Here’s a Video—From the FANHS Museum on the 55th Anniversary of the Grape Strike and Larry Itliong’s place as THE Asian American Labor leader

Hello all:

Check out my Labor Day special on Larry Itliong and the Grape Strike with a Filipino American who lived through it.

It’s the 55th anniversary of the Grape Strike.

I did this interview on Facebook live, but you can see it as live, right here

And don’t forget to read all my columns here.

Emil Amok’s Takeout: Happy July 4th, 5th, 6th… Hamilton, Mt. Rushmore, plus another TED Talk.

Hey, Happy Fourth. I finally got around to “Hamilton.” It only took me five years. It’s easier to get into Harvard.
And guess what. My buddy Ishmael Reed was right. So why are brown and black actors playing the oppressors so cool?
That and a lot more on this episode.

And when you’re done, check out my columns here.

Emil Amok’s Takeout: On George Floyd and the week that will undo Trump. And why Filipinos especially should be in solidarity with #BLM

Last week was a turning point week. America has found a path to renewal through George Floyd. Protests have upped the charges against the cops. The same old same old doesn’t work anymore. Violent looters can’t hijack the moral vision. Even Trump can’t reverse the trend toward reversing racism. Too bad for him. Now he can’t use racism anymore without really appearing racist. There’s no cover. And so the Republicans who have been quiet are speaking out, and ashamed. Trump is toast? Looks like it.
My guest is Filipino American history professor Daniel Phil Gonzales of San Francisco State University.
