History Café: Filipino American Labor Activism in the Fields and Canneries 

This event has passed.

Please note: Recordings of History Café: Filipino American Labor Activism in the Fields and Canneries are available for replay on SoundCloud and YouTube.

Filipino migrant workers on the west coast of the United States have a long tradition of labor activism in the fields of California and the seafood canneries of Alaska. The harrowing stories of survival and determination are the legacy of this generation of Filipino Manongs.

Join Richard Gurtiza and Rey Pascua as they share how famed Filipino labor activists Carlos Bulosan, Larry Itliong, Phillip Veracruz, and Chris Mansalvas overcame government and social injustice to create a progressive workers movement in the fields and canneries.
