Frank Abe, who penned We Hearby Refuse: Japanese American Resistance to Wartime Incarceration and helped organize Portland's first-ever Day of Remembrance event in 1979, will share the book he co-edited, The Literature of Japanese American Incarceration, at this talk organized by the Japanese American Museum of Oregon. AANHPI Heritage Month is a solid time to learn about the United States's history of Japanese American incarceration during World War II; The Literature of Japanese American Incarceration compiles 70 works by Nikkei former incarcerees and their descendants.
