Peter Jamero has been promoting his second book, Vanishing Filipino Americans: The Bridge Generation. The book focuses on the experiences of the Bridge Generation, second generation children of pioneer Manong Generation that immigrated to the United States during the early 1900s.
The Bridge Generation are now in their 60s, 70s, and 80s. Despite going through similar experiences and hardships as their parents, the literature contains virtually nothing of the Bridge Generation’s life in America.
Theirs is a story that is yet to be told. With the writing of Vanishing Filipino Americans: The Bridge Generation, Jamero hopes to begin the process of documenting the experiences and contributions of these second generation Filipino Americans – thus addressing a significant void in the history of Filipinos in America.
