(In Person) For Every Generation: Recovering and Preserving Family Histories

Selected date

Saturday August 13

Selected time

2:00 PM  –  3:30 PM

Exhibitions like Sutra and Bible: Faith and the Japanese American World War II Incarceration are made possible by the dedicated efforts of family and community members who have preserved and researched their family’s histories and the objects, images, and documents that tell these stories. 


Join us as we learn from Dr. Gail Y. Okawa, Mitch Homma, Elizabeth Nishiura, and Laura Dominguez-Yon about their families and the efforts they’ve made to record and share their stories and preserve the unique and rare objects that are featured in Sutra and Bible. Nancy Ukai, Project Director of 50 Objects, will moderate the conversation. 

The catalog for Sutra and Bible and Remembering Out Grandfathers’ Exile by Gail Y. Okawa are available for purchase from the JANM Store online and in person. Participants will be available to sign books after the program.
