Nikkei Cultural Production and Legacies of War

How have Japanese North American communities mobilized creativity, arts, media, and cultural production to respond to the legacies of World War II, including the internment of Nikkei communities and its contemporary impacts? This panel features cultural practitioners and organizers, who will draw on their histories of individual and community practice to shed light on the linkages between cultural and creative production and Nikkei histories, identities and community formations.
