Please join St. Margaret’s in May for two events organized to recognize the trauma and the achievement of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. These events have been organized by long-time parishioner and curator Ann Yonemura.
As background reading to begin this month, Ann recommends this article by Dr. Mae Ngai, Professor of Asian American Studies and History at Columbia University, and this book by Mine Okubo, one of over one hundred thousand people of Japanese descent – nearly two-thirds of whom were American citizens – who were forced into “protective custody” shortly after Pearl Harbor. Learn more about the event on May 7 and the event on May 21. Register for one or both events.
