Acclaimed storyteller and Bay Area activist Brenda Wong Aoki presents Aunt Lily's Flower Book: One Hundred Years of Legalized Racism. A live performance set to music by Emmy Award-winning composer Mark Izu and koto master Shoko Hikage, Wong Aoki embodies multiple characters to take the audience through a tale of family secrets and resilience from the perspective of Chinese Americans and Japanese Americans. Combining both sides of the Wong Aoki and Izu family histories — from a grandfather who built the railroad to a father who served in and survived the 442nd during World War II — AUNT LILY’S FLOWER BOOK highlights the impact of residual trauma and the role that the arts play in healing.

A Power of Personal Story audience conversation before the show will be led by psychologist and filmmaker Satsuki Ina and CAAM Executive Director Stephen Gong.
