Upcoming historical talk on January 20, 2022

1/1/2022 Update: You can now register for my talk on the Take PART webpage!

I have been invited by Take PART to speak about my mother’s family experience being unjustly incarcerated (along with 120,000 others) during World War II. The free talk will be online using Zoom. During my talk I will be showing family pictures, providing historical context, and sharing video clips of my mother from various talks she has given in the past. At the end I will invite questions and discussion. I sincerely and warmly invite you and everyone you know to join online live.

Here are the details:
When: Thursday, January 20, 2022, 7pm Pacific Time
Where: Online Zoom Meeting
Cost: Free (register by clicking here)

Register online (for free) to obtain the Zoom meeting details. Event details and registration are now posted on Take PART’s webpage.

If you are unable to attend, a recording will be made available at a later point (but I really hope you can join live!).

Take PART is the Portland Anti-Racism Team, a group whose mission is to confront racism and engage in dismantling the systems that continue racial inequality.

I am very impressed with their talks and presentations which I find thought provoking, respectful, and very enlightening. Past presentations can be viewed online here.

    Some have asked how my mother is doing. She turns 90 this June and still is full of vim and vigor. She might join the Zoom presentation.
