Description

A book reading and discussion with
Mira Shimabukuro and Bob Shimabukuro

Two generations from a Seattle activist family speak today on the subject of  “Writing, Redress and Social Justice: 75 years after Executive Order 9066.” Bob Shimabukuro, a former editor of Seattle’s pan-Asian American newspaper, The International Examiner, the founding executive director of the Asian Pacific AIDS Council, is the author of Born in Seattle: The Campaign for Japanese American Redress (University of Washington Press). He  appears in conversation with his daughter, activist and educator Mira Shimabukuro, who wrote Relocating Authority: Japanese Americans Writing to Redress Mass Incarceration  (University Press of Colorado), and  teaches at the University of Washington, Bothell.  Given current political realities, they ask: “What are our (Japanese American community and allies) responsibilities now?”
