EVENT DATE: 04/28/2006
RUNNING TIME: 84 minutes
The Asian Division of the Library of Congress held a daylong symposium on author Carlos Bulosan, titled "America Is in the Heart for the 21st Century." Bulosan depicted the early Filipino migrant experience in the United States and is best known for his book "America Is in the Heart."
The Library, in conjunction with the Asian Division Friends Society (ADFS), coordinated the program as a centennial project to commemorate the first-wave migration to Hawaii by Filipino nationals. Our Own Voice, an online literary journal for Filipinos in the diaspora, is the ADFS's partner in the project to reintroduce the writings of Bulosan to the public.
