Selected Quotes from America is in the Heart
by Carlos Bulosan
Photography by Paul Tañedo

America is also the nameless foreigner, the homeless refugee,
the hungry boy begging for a job and the black body dangling on a tree.
America is the illiterate immigrant who is ashamed that the world
of books and intellectual opportunities is closed to him.
We are all that nameless foreigner, that homeless refugee, that hungry boy,
that illiterate immigrant and that lynched black body. All of us, from the first Adams
to the last Filipino, native born or alien, educated or illiterate
We are America!
