What does Filipino-American History Month (October) actually mean? Is it ube-flavored lattes and lumpia? Is it Manny Pacquiao and an obsession with Kobe Bryant?
Leah and Trizzy dive deeper into the contributions, success, trials, and culture of Filipino-Americans and their history and shaping of the United States. Even though Leah is a first-generation Filipino-American, she didn't truly feel connected to or understand her Filipino roots until going off to university.
Listen in on the stories, questions, and anecdotes to make us think more carefully about the way we celebrate history versus heritage.
