Texas Standard: May 31, 2021

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.
