El Movimiento

Yuri es probablemente la persona más famosa que trabajó en el Movimiento de los Derechos Civiles durante los 60. Lo que la diferenció con los otros activistas fue que no sólo defendía a los americanos japoneses sino también a los americanos africanos, latinoamericanos, americanos asiáticos y todas las personas que quiera ser escuchado. Ella creía fuertemente en el poder de la unidad y luchó por la alianza cultural por un mundo más tolerante y aceptable.
