When the Japanese-Canadian community celebrated its centennial year in 1977, the occasion also marked the beginning of a nation-wide undertaking by the community to obtain justice for their war-time internment. Keynote speaker, Art Miki, who wrote the book The Japanese Canadian Redress Legacy: A Community Revitalized and was an instrumental leader in the negotiations and the movement, will speak from his personal experience and recount the story of the long road to finally receiving an apology and recompense from the Canadian government in 1988.
Following the speakers, there will be a panel discussion and a Q&A session open for audience participation.
This is a free event open to the public.
