Filipino American History Month

October is Filipino American History Month, a time for our community to reflect on our history in America and our place in the Filipino diaspora.

From the time America took over the Spanish colonized Filipinos in 1898, the majority of Filipinos looked to America for a financially secure life. As more Filipino immigrated, even with the 1935 Tydings-McDuffie Act that limited U.S. immigration to 50 Filipinos per year, we created our own communities and immersed ourselves as model minorities where we didn’t have prominent Filipino populations. Our history is rich, diverse and worth telling and I hope people take the time to attend Filipino American History Month events in October.

I am humbled my debut novel “Enlightenment” is available for pre-order anywhere books are sold this Filipino American History Month. It’s a quick read that explores the forgotten history of our mother land, the Philippines through the eyes of Filipino characters Dorothy and Adrian.

Available on paperback and ebook. Just click on the image below.

Here’s to understanding our history and our place in the world!
