Growing up brownFilipinos make up the second largest Asian American population and yet little is known about this ethnic group. Exposure to American culture during the early 1900s under colonial rule led to rapid assimilation especially when crossing to the US. Learning English in the Philippines along with adopting American customs gave Filipinos an advantage and by the third wave of immigration, faced less and less discrimination. With an excess of Americanization, the original culture faded and Filipinos walk invisible in America compared to other Asian counterparts. I was born in Manila, but raised in the suburbs of Chicago. Growing up Brown is a personal exploration of how Filipinos preserve our cultural identity and memories while also balancing an American identity.
