Join us for the opening reception of Aksiyon ng Komunidad, Building Community in Action, a special exhibition commemorating Filipino American history including the development of Oakland Chinatown today.
To celebrate Filipino American History Month in October, Oakland Asian Cultural Center will display “We Are America: Building Community in Action” a 100-year timeline of Filipinos in U.S. history. This year’s celebration will pay tribute to Oakland Chinatown agencies that can trace their origins to the Third World Strikes on local college campuses to establish Ethnic Studies in 1969.
The exhibit will run from September 19th to November 3rd.
Co-sponsored by Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Filipino Advocates for Justice, SF FANHS Bay Area Consortium, and UC Berkeley PAA Alumni Chapter.
