Filipinos in Barack’s America

THIS week, the PCIJ Channel features an interview with U.S.-based Filipino journalist Benjamin Pimentel, author of Pareng Barack: Filipinos in Obama’s America.

Published by Anvil, the book talks about Barack Obama’s march to the American presidency and how Filipinos responded to it. It also tells the story of the Filipino journey in the United States, how it interacted, sometimes even clashed, with those of other communities.

Listen to Pimentel as he talks more about his book, his views on the challenges president-elect Obama is yet to face, and how he himself would fit in Barack’s America.
