Kapisanan's next round of Critical Filipino History classes will start on Wednesday, September 15 @ 6pm, and the first class will be on Accents, Flat Noses, Tsismis, and other stuff we’re ashamed of...

The first session will discuss the prejudices that we have about our own people and why we hate on ourselves so much. "Funny" accents, pango (flat) noses, the smell of ulam in our parents' homes (when we bring friends over), "dark" skin, tsismis, giant Jesus altars, FOBs, and other topics will be the launching pad for discussions that will cover our own rollercoaster history.

Future Topics May Include (exact topics TBD with input from participants) - Sports - Beauty and Fashion - Food - Pop Culture: Movies/TV - Pop Culture: Music - Was Rizal Really All That, and other Historical misconceptions - Invaders, “Insurgents,” and International Intrigue…
