“Dear America, Notes of an Undocumented Citizen” AND Recognizing Native Americans in OC

Pull up a chair to a very different Thanksgiving table. Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer prize winner, journalist and immigration activist, brings essential perspectives from his new book Dear America, Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, and his thriving “Define American” campaign, https://defineamerican.com/. JFK, who’s assassination was 45 years ago this week, wrote “A Nation of Immigrants,” a book that figures several times in Jose’s book. Copies of Dear America are available at: joseantoniavargas.com, or your favorite independent book dealer.
In the second segment (minute 31:00), Patricia Martz returns to the show, joined by Rebecca Robles, nurse and Acjachemen descendent, to unearth local Native American culture in our midst. Behold the cog wheel in Surf City!  The Panhe annual celebration is scheduled on March 24, 2019. Details will be available at:http://www.ccrpa.com/.
