Summary
"Filipino farm workers sat down in the grape fields of Delano, California, in 1965 and began the strike that brought about a dramatic turn in the long history of farm labor struggles in California. Their efforts led to the creation of the United Farm Workers union under Cesar Chavez, with Philip Vera Cruz as its vice-president and highest-ranking Filipino officer." "Philip Vera Cruz (1904-1994) embodied the experiences of the manong generation, an enormous wave of Filipino immigrants who came to the United States between 1910 and 1930. Instead of better opportunities, they found racial discrimination, deplorable living conditions, and oppressive labor practices. In his deeply reflective and thought-provoking oral memoir, Vera Cruz explores the toll these conditions took on both families and individuals. With clear-sighted intellect and honesty about himself and the society in which he struggled, this exceptional leader examines the difficulties of cross-racial labor organizing, while revealing the unacknowledged role of Filipino laborers in the creation of the United Farm Workers union."--BOOK JACKET
