"Journey for Justice" honors Filipino farmworker & organizer Larry Itliong
On this edition of Your Call, Gayle Romasanta joins us to discuss Journey for Justice: The Life of Larry Itliong, an illustrated nonfiction children’s book about the Filipino-American cofounder of the United Farm Workers.
It’s the first book of its kind about Filipino American history. It’s also the first book ever about Larry Itliong, a pioneer in the farmworkers’ movement. Filipino Americans are the second largest Asian American population in the nation, but rarely appear in history books. What’s the legacy of Filipino Americans?
