HPF Speaker Series — Filipinos & Pullman: Speaker Don Villar

September 18 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

“Filipinos & Pullman”

Join the Historic Pullman Foundation for its 2022 Speaker Series, highlighting the history, neighborhood, culture, and monument of Pullman. The Speaker Series will take place the third Sunday of every month.

The September featured speaker is Don Villar, a labor activist, an Emmy award-winning former broadcast news journalist, and civil rights attorney.

As African-American sleeping car porters organized in the late 1920s, the Pullman Company recruited Filipinos as replacements. Little did the corporation know that their newest workers would side with the new union. Learn more about the history of Filipino workers and their effect on the Pullman rail car company.
