Hum Bows, Not Hot Dogs: Memoirs of a Savvy Asian American Activist (Paperback)
Bob Santos was a hero in an urban hamlet called the International District, an Asian American neighborhood in Seattle. As a leader of a powerful grassroots movement in the 1970s and 80s, he helped rescue the area from decay and helped foster a dynamic new sense of community. In this colorful autobiography, "Uncle Bob" Santos shares memories of this eventful era. He also tells of his childhood in the International District with his father, a famous local boxer; his participation in the drive for racial equality in Seattle in the 1960s; and his rise to political worlds beyond Seattle.
