The Nisei Soldier Legacy: Why it Matters Today with JETAA Florida



Join JETAA Florida for a discussion on the social justice legacy of the Japanese American (“Nisei”) soldiers of the 442nd RCT who overcame poverty and prejudice to become the most decorated outfit in US military history for its size and length of service. The discussion will feature Dr. Lynn Heirakuji, President and Board Member of the Nisei Veterans Legacy, whose father was a member of the 442nd RCT, with commentary from Diane Hirabayashi Carter, Collections Assistant at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, and Dr. Mitzi Uehara Carter, Assistant Teaching Professor of Anthropology, East Asian Studies, and the African and Africa Diaspora Program at Florida International University.
