That Heart Of Bonifacio: 10 Filipino Historical References In Hip-Hop | Filipino American Heritage Month

I resent high school for various reasons, and one of them is the fact that all the Filipino American history I should have been learning at that age was nowhere to be found in any of the history classes I took. I had to go find out about my people’s history on my own, whether it was in books my older brother brought home from college, on KQED or in the Asian American history classes I enrolled in after high school.
