May 27, Earl rated it really liked it. I've been excited for this book and series that will feature Filipino historical figures. It really is amazing how many people's stories get pushed to the side and how important that they finally get told. I wish the book wasn't so long but I'm glad this exist. And I hope they stick with traditional book page numbering in future editions and future titles.

Important story that needs to be heard. Oct 29, Reno rated it it was amazing Shelves: filipino-literature. Such an important publication, not only because it's a quality children's book. It provides a historical voice to the Filipinx struggle in settling in America during the 's, specifically the farm laborers of the Central Valley in California.
The genius of making this a children's book gives an opportunity for educators to introduce this into classrooms for ALL kids to learn about Filipino hero Larry Itliong who organized farm laborers to have a voice during a time it was illegal to have a voice. It is my belief this will have long-lasting positive effects on shaping the Filipino American voice in generations to come.
For any Filipino family with children, this is a must-have in your home library!

Journey for Justice: The Life of Larry Itliong Book Tour & Tribute to Dr. D...
Dawn Bohulano Mabalon. Dawn Bohulano Mabalon — was an American academic who worked on documenting the history of Filipino Americans. Her great uncle-cum-grandfather, Victor Selga, and seven other uncles to whom she had dedicated the book, bought and operated an eight-bedroom farmhouse off Bixby Road in Brentwood right on the California Delta.
She was doing research and writing the biography of Larry Itliong for the last three years well into her death. The project proved to be quite challenging with limited time and resources on top of her busy schedule as a professor at SFSU. Mabalon and Romasanta had been friends for over 20 years and at one point were comedy partners doing shows at Bindlestiff Studio where they also met and worked with Sibayan. The three formed the team for Journey for Justice. On August 10, Mabalon was vacationing with her family in Kauai.

Romasanta and Sibayan woke Mabalon up through a text message at seven in the morning to go through the last minute edits to the manuscript before it was sent to the printer. With everything in its right place, Romasanta then mailed the manuscript to the printer. Mabalon died the same day. Journey for Justice is the first in a planned series of books on Filipino American historical figures. Romasanta had proposed to do eight books, but Mabalon disagreed. They agreed to do four books on two men and two women.
They already had two men in mind: Larry Itliong and the writer, Carlos Bulosan, and one woman: the Olympic gold medalist, Victoria Manalo Draves, but they did not know who the fourth woman was going to be. Journey for Justice is currently available for purchase only through selected bookstores as a way to support independent booksellers.
