Filipinos in San Francisco

Arcadia Publishing just released “Filipinos in San Francisco,” a book that chronicles the Filipino influence on the city of San Francisco as part of their Images of America Series. This book was written by the Pin@y Educational Partnerships and Manilatown Heritage Foundation, and is mostly a photo journal that traces the history of Filipinos in San Francisco.

This release follows on the heels of other West Coast releases “Filipinos in San Diego” (August 2010), “Filipinos in the East Bay” ( Jun 23 2008), “Filipinos in Stockton” (2008), “Filipinos in Hollywood” (Feb 2008), and “Filipinos in Vallejo” (2005).

I highly recommend these books for young Filipino Americans ages 10 – 18 years old who are just realizing the Filipino influence in America. I’m so happy Filipinos are being included by Arcadia Publishing as a relevant immigrant community worth investing in. Now if we can get Hollywood to agree? So many Filipino stories that aren’t getting any love…can we have another film we can hang our hats on besides The Debut?

Anyway, support the book release and pick up a copy here!
