   schema:description ""Philip Vera Cruz (1904-1994) embodied the experiences of the manong generation, an enormous wave of Filipino immigrants who came to the United States between 1910 and 1930. Instead of better opportunities, they found racial discrimination, deplorable living conditions, and oppressive labor practices. In his deeply reflective and thought-provoking oral memoir, Vera Cruz explores the toll these conditions took on both families and individuals. With clear-sighted intellect and honesty about himself and the society in which he struggled, this exceptional leader examines the difficulties of cross-racial labor organizing, while revealing the unacknowledged role of Filipino laborers in the creation of the United Farm Workers union."--Jacket."@en ;
