Filipino Champions of SOMA Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sun, May 12, 2013 -- 2:30 PM

Many Filipinos have considered South of Market (SOMA) in San Francisco home for more than a hundred years. Filipinos were shipped to San Francisco to work in restaurants, hotels and fields in the early 1900s. These early immigrants struggled with poverty and discrimination, but they found support from kababayans in SOMA. This documentary recognizes three Filipino Champions of SoMA: Rudy Corpuz of United Playaz; Filipino American Development Foundation's MC Canlas; and Westbay Pilipino Multi-Service Center's Rudy Asercion.
