April 7 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Doors open at noon with live taiko drumming by Seattle Kokon Taiko at 12:15 p.m.
Event begins at 12:30 p.m.
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.
