3 week memoir class at WCC

Offering a 3 week memoir class starting today at WCC. I scheduled this class by mistake, not knowing that mid-winter break had been cancelled. I will never offer a 3-week class again, so if you want a 3 week morning class, register to come today.

New Film, 'Go For Broke,' Explores Formation of U.S. Military's Most Decorated Unit - NBC News

my article for nbc asian america
"People know some of the history of the 442nd on the battlefield, but what led up to its formation is not known," actor Chris Tashima who portrays Shigeo Yoshida, a Japanese-American leader in Hawaii, told NBC News. "It didn't just happen by itself, and there were many fights that had to be won, on the local level [in Hawai'i], in order for government and military leaders to be persuaded to 'trust' the Nisei. This is important history, not yet told."

Event Series to Explore 'Asian American Feminism in the Age of Trump' - NBC News

my article for NBC Asian America

"Every day comes a new attack on Muslims, undocumented immigrants, environmentalists, and so forth. There cannot be a divide and conquer — there must be a strong base that is ready to show up, resist, protest where we are needed. And yes, we are needed."
