    Her documentary, "The Delano Manongs: Forgotten Heroes of the United Farm Workers," adds an important, but missing, story about Filipino Americans who stood with Mexican American civil rights icon Cesar Chavez as dedicated members of the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee. It features "manongs," the Filipino word for "older brothers" or "older Filipino gentlemen," who traveled to the United States in the 1920s and 1930s with the shared vision of earning money in white-collar as well as blue-collar jobs.
