This brief history of the Chicago Nisei Athletic Association (CNAA) supplements our traveling exhibit, Japanese American Team Spirit: Chicago Nisei Athletic Association. Through photos, objects, and text, we explore how sports contributed to community formation and reflected intergenerational relationships from the mid-1940s to the early 1990s.
