Beyond The Textbook: Stories Of Japanese American Incarceration

  • Peninsula Museum of Art 1777 California Drive Burlingame, CA, 94010 United States (map)

How does art provide a way into compassion and healing?

Three Japanese American women: Delphine Hirasun - author and curator of Art of Gaman, Judy Shintan - artist exhibiting at PMA, and Jill Guillermo-Togaw - dancer and choreographer, discuss how they keep this history alive using different modalities and intimate stories of the internees. Grace Morizawa, author and educator, will moderate.

Judy Shintani will discuss the survey of Internee descendants.
