OK, this is a really long quote, but here's the beginning (more in the comments, including why I'm putting it here) #history #AAPIHM
“The most groundbreaking recent works on the urban West have focused on interethnic and interracial relations and the interplay between communities and urban space. These works remind us that peoples of color in the West did not live in a vacuum, hermetically sealed off from one another in segregated communities.

suzisteffen “In fact, the works show how working-class people and people of color struggled to live and get along together, challenged racism and exploitation, created new ethnic cultures and identities, and made the most of their often meager resources in their urban working-class communities. ⬇️ 4y
suzisteffen “Matt Garcia‘s book on Mexican labor and community formation in Los Angeles, Scott Kurashige‘s groundbreaking work on blacks and Japanese in Los Angeles, Mark Wild‘s book on multiethnic communities in Los Angeles, and Allison Varzally‘s study on interracial marriage all attempt to understand how different groups interacted with one another in California, and how these interactions forged new identities and communities.“

YAY?! MORE BOOKS TO READ!

It is #AAPIHM, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and I am pumped to start reading this history of the Filipinx community in Stockton, California. (I know that Filipinx ppl have been in the US since long before it was the US, bc of Spanish colonialism and slavery and sailing ships, but I think this is more recent history.) #History #California #Filipinx
