2013 JANM National Conference - "Speaking Up! Democracy, Justice, Dignity"


[Audio] 99 Years of Love/Hate (Session in Japanese)

In 2010 the Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) broadcast a dramatic miniseries, 99 Years of Love: Japanese Americans, the story of the Hiramatsu family and its enduring family love in the face of bitter struggles with anti-Japanese exclusion and World War II within the United States and Japan. This panel discusses the larger historical context of the series and its impact upon the Japanese and their reaction to Japanese American history.
