Celebration of Culture and Resilience

San Francisco, CA - On October 18, 1857, the first known Filipinos, then known as Indios Luzones, landed in the Americas. Today, the Bay Area is home to the largest Filipino community outside of the Philippines. For many, the arc of this history is unknown, but San Francisco Public Library’s upcoming Filipino American History Month aims to change that.
