“Teachers and writers often say that reading books gives us life tools, which is true—but those tools mean nothing without readers stepping up to the task of what those tools actually ask of us. #Critical #reading is a #civic act; it’s the kind of reading that asks you to be both #sharp and #vulnerable to both the world of the #book and the #world the book emerges from; the kind of reading that asks you to bear #witness to the things in a book that #speak low and deep to some low and deep part of you, which might not always say #easy or #comforting things. Critical reading returns you to your #life with #renewed #eyes; it #deepens the world for you, inasmuch as it deepens you for the world.

Pleasantly surprised and moved to see a Filipino American classic next to Whitman, Steinbeck, Dickens, and Plato at my local bookstore @SkylightBooks. Carlos Bulosan doesn’t need the validation IMO but I think he would have dug it. Check out the new @PenguinClassics edition of his seminal work “America Is in the Heart,” which chronicled the harsh realities faced by the first big wave of Filipino immigrants in the U.S. — the manong generation. Told through Bulosan’s own personal experiences with a foreword by @_ElaineCastillo, author of “America is Not the Heart.”

“This is the beginning of your life in America,” Julio said. “We'll take a freight train from Sunnyside and go to nowhere.” “I would like to go to California,” I said. “I have two brothers there—but I don't know if I could find them.” “All roads go to California and all travelers wind up in Los Angeles,” Julio said. “But not this traveler. I have lived there too long. I know that state too damn well….” “What do you mean?” I asked. Suddenly he became sad and said: “It is hard to be a Filipino in California.”

“We march on, though sometimes strange moods fill our children. Our march toward security and peace is the march of freedom—the freedom that we should like to become a living part of. It is the dignity of the individual to live in a society of free men, where the spirit of understanding and belief exists; of understanding that all men, whatever their color, race, religion or estate, should be given equal opportunity to serve themselves and each other according to their needs and abilities.

But we are not really free unless we use what we produce. So long as the fruit of our labor is denied us, so long will want manifest itself in a world of slaves.

It is only when we have plenty to eat—plenty of everything— that we begin to understand what freedom means. To us, freedom is not an intangible thing. When we have enough to eat, then we are healthy enough to enjoy what we eat. Then we have the time and ability to read and think and discuss things. Then we are not merely living but also becoming a creative part of life. It is only then that we become a growing part of democracy.”

Thank you @breyeschow !!! ****
Reppin' my Filipino/a heroes shirt. Was a trip watching folks read my chest all day, with very few knowing of Carlos, Larry, Fred, and Dawn. Those who did, we're quite excited. Shirt bought to support the film @ThePatientsFilm and @fanhs_national.
