The Delano Manongs: Forgotten Heroes of the UFW
The Delano Manongs tells the unknown history of a group of Filipino farmworkers in Delano, California who toiled under the yoke of racism for decades, then rose up in their twilight years to fight for fair wages and ethical work conditions.
The Manongs (A Manong is a Filipino term of respect for an older man) instigated one of the American labor movement’s finest hours – the Great Grape Strike of 1965 that brought about the creation of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW) and a successful joining of the Filipino and Chicano (Mexican-American) labor groups.
This program will show the 10 min. trailer. There will also be a discussion with the film’s director Marissa Aroy and panelists Dr. Dawn Mabalon of SFSU and Dr. Estella Habal of SJSU.
