Along with their campus partners, the USC Libraries celebrate Pilipino American History Month this October with a series of public programs. On Tuesday, October 18, USC Troy Philippines hosts a Migration Studies Workshop in Doheny Library, room 240. The following Saturday, October 22, a panel discussion at the 17th-annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar explores the history of the Filipino American Library and the legacy of its founder, "Auntie Helen" Summers Brown. And then on Tuesday, October 25, the USC Libraries host a Pilipino American History Month Closing Reception in Doheny Library's Nazarian Pavilion.
In addition, highlights from the Filipino American Library collection, which the USC Libraries acquired in 2017, will soon be on display in Doheny Library's Ground Floor Rotunda. Curated by Alyssa Adraneda of the USC Marshall School of Business, Vanessa Gomez Brake of the USC Office of Religious & Spiritual Life, and Melanee Vicedo of the USC Libraries, also working with the libraries' Anne-Marie Maxwell and Rebecca Corbett, the exhibition opens later this month.
