Sixty seven years after the publication of America is in the Heart, Carlos Bulosan’s writings—specifically his posthumously published The Cry and the Dedication—continue to remind us that the key to eliminating the racial and national subordination of the Filipino people is the achievement of genuine Philippine national sovereignty. 

In addition to his large body of passionately written works (novels, short stories, poems, letters), Bulosan’s gift to all of us in these perilous times is his meditation on the role of the artist in society. In his essays and letters, Bulosan reflects upon the function of artists (specifically Filipino writers) in the United States and the Philippines. In his essay “My Education,” Bulosan states, “Perhaps I could not understand America like [African American writer] Richard Wright, but I felt that I would be ineffectual if I did not return to my own people. I believed that my work would be more vital and useful if I dedicated it to the cause of my own people.”
