The Spirit of America and the Japanese Diaspora in New York City

By the early years of the 20th century, New York City was home to a vibrant Japanese immigrant community. Merchants, writers, community activists, and others established organizations and social networks that continue to shape Japanese-American identity today.

Panelists from organizations founded by these early pioneers will join historians and contemporary community activists in a discussion of New York's Japanese community then and now.

Moderated by Carol Gluck, George Sansom Professor of History at Columbia University, the panel will include Daniel Inouyé, Visiting Assistant Professor of History, Queens College/CUNY; Suki Terada Ports, founder and Executive Director of the Family Health Project; and Gary Moriwaki, President of the Japanese American Association of New York. Co-sponsored by the Japanese American Association of New York andJapan Society.

Presented in conjunction with Samurai in New York: The First Japanese Delegation, 1860.
