The Japanese American History Museum will be hosting our own Prof. Diane Fujino, activist-minister Ron Fujiyoshi, and community organizer Miya Sommers in a discussion about Prof. Fujino’s newest book, Nisei Radicals: The Feminist Poetics and Transformative Ministry of Mitsuye Yamada and Michael Yasutake. Fujiyoshi, a longtime friend of Yasutake, will share on his experiences working alongside Yasutake with a shared “jubilee liberation praxis.” Sommers will provide context for these stories within the current landscape of Japanese American community organizing. Portions of an interview with Yamada by Fujino will also be shared.
