  • Ep.101: Little Manila Rising Goes Door-to-Door to Get Out the Vaccine; Protects the Community by Fighting Misinformation.

    09/09/2021 Duración: 59min

    Amy Portello Nelson talks with Emil Guillermo about Little Manila Rising's "Get Out the Vaccine" drive. Modeled after the "Get Out the Vote" idea, the program goes door to door to give people good information about the virus and vaccines. And it's working, vaccine rates went from the low 30 percent range to more than 50 percent in the zipcodes canvassed. Now the plan is to keep going through the end of November. But it's not easy. Some are hesitant, and one resident even pulled a gun. But it's important work that Little Manila Rising is committed to doing. It's part of the evolution of Little Manila Rising, going from an educational and cultural focus to environmental and social justice issues to public health. And sometimes being all of those things as the community's needs change. Contact Emil Guillermo Media, www.amok.com Copyright, Emil Guillermo

  • Ep.70: Phil Tajitsu Nash on E.O. 9066 and the Incarceration of Japanese Americans

    21/02/2021 Duración: 01h48s

    Why were Japanese Americans incarcerated during World War II? President Franklin Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066 on Feb. 19, 1942 paved the way. And while some where given redress payments in 1988, the battle continues for a few hundred Japanese Latin Americans who were also incarcerated at the same time but left out of the settlement. Phil Tajitsu Nash, U.Maryland Asian American Studies professor, lawyer, and activist talks to Emil Guillermo about the ongoing fight for justice. Nash talks about the circumstances around E.O.9066 and how more than 100,000 Japanese Americans were rounded up in the first place. Also, why  Asian Americans were actually split about the incarceration with many Filipinos and Chinese in America were eager to disassociate themselves from the Japanese Americans. Nash talks about the need for solidarity among Asian Americans today and all people of color. Nash says many of those rounded up were American citizens, and none were ever convicted of espionage against the U.S. For

  • Ep.67: Farewell to Corky Lee-- My goodbye and my 2017 interview with Corky

    30/01/2021 Duración: 01h39min

    Corky Lee died on Jan. 27 of Covid. He is now the undisputed Asian American photographer laureate. There was no sense of a modern Asian American civil rights movement before Vincent Chin inspired a generation to stand up and be seen. Corky Lee documented it all. I talk of my friendship with Corky as I read my post from the AALDEF blog. Then, I reprise my 2017 interview with Corky where he talks about the photograph he saw as a young boy of the Transcontinental Railroad. The Golden Spike united America but the photograph didn't show the people who built it all--Chinese Americans. That slight birthed the photographic justice that inspired Corky's life's work. See more on my amok website. -- More on Corky at www.amok.com -- Corky's inclusive pictures of the Transcontinental railroad. -- my piece on Corky's death. --Emil Guillermo
