Japanese American culture\, however\, p roved more resilient than the government could imagine. Nearly 80 years la ter\, in a climate of peaceful US-Japan relations\, many Japanese American s still hold fast to or seek out community and tradition\, even as they lo ok ahead to the future. Join an intergenerational panel of luminaries for a frank and personal discussion of identity and cultural survival in the 2 1st century.\n\n<strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1rpEmzvI cE" target="_blank">Watch on YouTube</a></strong> SUMMARY:Preserving Culture and Identity URL:/en/events/2021/02/18/preserving-culture-and-identity/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
