October Observances Part 2

October Observances Part 2

I celebrated Filipino American History Month this October watching three films by Marissa Aroy at Delta College – The Recipe; Little Manila, Filipinos In California’s Heartland and The Delano Manongs, Forgotten Heroes Of The United Farm Workers which detailed Larry Itliong’s involvement.  The films were followed by a panel discussion and Q & A with filmmaker Marissa Aroy, Professors James Sobredo and Debra Louie, Johnny Itliong (son of Larry Itliong), moderated by Journalist Emil Guillermo.

During the discussion several points were made – We have to tell our own story and we need to learn from the past or it will be repeated.  My take away is all voices must be heard for the complete picture to emerge.
