Community Event

May 20241

Toronto JCCC
6 Sakura Way (formerly Garamond Court)
Toronto, Ontario, M3C 1Z5

Enjoy a reading from Gaman – Perseverance, an introduction from Mohammed Hashim, executive director of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, and a conversation between Art Miki and Lynn Kobayashi, president of the Toronto chapter of the National Association of Japanese Canadians!

Gaman – Perseverance is an in-depth memoir detailing the intense negotiations that took place in the 1980s between the Government of Canada and the NAJC – negotiations which finally resulted in the historic Japanese Canadian Redress Agreement of September 1988 and the acknowledgment by Prime Minister Brian Mulroney that Canada had wronged its own citizens. In Gaman – Perseverance, Art Miki recollects his past experiences and family history, revealing the beliefs and attitudes that shaped his life’s journey as a youth in British Columbia, an educator in Manitoba, and a community leader across Canada.

We can't wait to see you there!
