Our Voices will Not be Silenced: Critical Conversation, Art, and Virtual Fundraiser
October 5, 2023
We are witnessing a new era of whitewashing. Book bans, censorship, and attempts to sanitize our nation’s past are all on the rise – so it’s more important than ever that we raise our voices and collectively refuse to be silenced. Join us for a conversation with “Love in the Library” author Maggie Tokuda-Hall, who bravely stood up against Scholastic Inc. earlier this year when they attempted to censor her use of terms like “racism” in an author’s note about her grandparents’ incarceration experience.
Documenting stories and fearlessly speaking the truth is core to what we do at Densho. And while we uplift the voices of thought leaders like Maggie and WWII incarceration survivors alike, we need your help in carrying that work into the future. Please join us for this evening of conversation, performance, and capacity-building for Densho.
This one-hour virtual program is free to all who register. In addition to a featured conversation between Maggie Tokuda-Hall and Densho Executive Director Naomi Ostwald Kawamura, the program will include a live musical performance by Tomo Nakayama, a poetry reading by traci kato-kiriyama, and will be hosted by Erin Shigaki and Brady Wakayama.
