“A Tribute to My Father”

It’s Filipino-American History month! Filipino student organizations and journals in the U.S. have a history of supporting Filipino American causes, writers, and artists. Journals like The Filipino Student (UC Berkeley, 1905), Liwanag (1975), Maganda (UC Berkeley, 1989), and Pinoy Know Yourself (UC Santa Cruz, 1973), were groundbreaking. FANHS (and ACE) member Dom Siababa writes about the founding of CFFC, the first Filipino student organization at UCSC, its publication Pinoy Know Yourself: an Introduction to the Filipino American Experience, and his poem, “A Tribute to My Father.” Read the whole article in The Commonwealth Cafe, a website focusing on Filipino print periodicals published in the U.S.
