CONVERSATIONS is a new National Museum public program series featuring intimate conversations with prominent individuals about their personal and professional inspirations, discoveries, and influences. The program series is an ideal opportunity for our younger generation to develop a deeper understanding and connection with the Japanese American story and community.

The series' first program is an exclusive opportunity to hear directly from two notable leaders from our community, Secretary Norman Y. Mineta and Actor/Activist George Takei. Hear their personal journeys from being incacerated in camp during World War II to their prospective careers in the public eye.

Cocktail reception to follow. Sponsorships and ticketed packages available. Click here for sponsor benefits and form. All proceeds to support the National Museum's educational programming and outreach.
