It’s Memorial Day and we have a special show for you. “Overlooked No More: How Asian Texans Shape the State”. Here on the Texas Standard.
We’ll talk about How the Asian American community has changed from 1870 – the first time the US census counted people from China to today.
We’ll meet a group called the “Pershing Chinese” – a story of Chinese immigration through Mexico.
Then, we’ll travel to the border where a vibrant Filipino community settled.
Is it time to re-evaluate the holidays we celebrate in Texas???
Plus, K-Pop and activism. And, the state of jobs and healthcare during COVID.
