He is third generation Japa nese American\, known as a Sansei\, and he was two years old when his fami ly was taken along with 120\,000 other Japanese Americans from their homes \, their businesses\, leaving all their belongings\, and put into Minidoka \, one of the many internment camps where they remained behind bars throug hout World War II. That experience has lived forever in his memory and has created in Roger a deep sense of empathy for discrimination against any a nd all races and religions in America. His art is created with a great sen se of humanity\, reflecting his association with every bias that might thr eaten our democracy.
