“Little Manila: Filipinos in CA’s Heartland”

I must have missed this in my email yeterday…which means I’ve missed watching it last night as scheduled in LA Channel 58. Maybe I’ll find it another time. Thanks M– anyway!

Please check out the documentary, “Little Manila : Filipinos in California
‘s Heartland,” which is going to be aired nationally on select PBS Stations.
We’d love it if you could watch the program on your local station and spread
the news, too.

About the Program:
Narrated by Dean Devlin, famed Filipino-American movie producer
(Independence Day, The Patriot), the program is about the infamous
neighborhood in Stockton, CA, once called, “The City of Gold” by Filipinos.
Filled with chop-suey houses, gambling dens, and dance halls, Little Manila
was once home to the largest number of Filipino immigrants outside of the
Philippines .
