Description :

This documentary film explores the extraordinary life of Dr. Dalip Singh Saund (1899-1973) while
providing historical context of legal and social discrimination against Asians. Through the telling of the personal story of Dalip Singh Saund librarians will learn of about the early U.S. immigration laws aimed at preventing people from Asia and the Pacific Islands from coming to America and naturalizing as citizens. He came to the U.S. in 1920 as a student and attended UC Berkeley. He graduated in 1924 with a Masters and a PhD in Mathematics. Because Dalip Singh Saund was ineligible for citizenship, he was unable to find a job in his field. When he was able to naturalize as a citizen, Saund became the first Asian, the first Indian and the first Sikh elected to serve in the U.S. Congress.

Salsa, Un poema para cocinar / A Cooking Poem
In this new cooking poem is a fun and easy recipe for a yummy salsa. A young boy and his sister gather the ingredients and grind them up in a molcajete, just like their ancestors used to do, singing and dancing all the while. The children imagine that their ingredients are different parts of an orchestra—the tomatoes are bongos and kettledrums, the onion, a maraca, the cloves of garlic, trumpets and the cilantro, the conductor. When they are finished, their mother warms tortillas and their father lays out plates, as the whole family dance salsa in mouth-watering anticipation.
