How are millennials of Japanese ancestry honoring the legacy of their grandparents and great-grandparents who were incarcerated during World War II? Why is it important to tell this story of racial prejudice and civil liberties denied for generations to come? Seattle JACL and Densho invite you for an afternoon of art, live performance, and dialogue at Wing Luke museum. The event features spoken-word poetry by Troy Osaki and Kurt Yokoyama Ikeda; a presentation by photographer Kayla Isomura, creator of The Suitcase Project; and a performance by Gabrielle Kazuko Nomura Gainor and dancers, who will present an excerpt of “Farewell Shikata ga nai.” The discussion will include time for audience input and questions, and will be moderated by Nina Nobuko Wallace, Communications Coordinator for Densho.
