Nikkei community newspapers served an important role for a century as the glue that held together groups of immigrants with news and information about their communities as well as the latest from Japan. Later, their place in the community evolved as they served English-speaking Nisei and Sansei. But in recent years, the media industry has been in an upheaval, and many Nikkei community newspapers have shut down. 

Join us as we celebrate the history, discuss the current state, and ponder the future of Nikkei community newspapers in America.

Moderator: Gil Asakawa. Confirmed panelists: Gwen Muranaka of The Rafu Shimpo , Kenji G. Taguma of the Nichi Bei Foundation / Nichi Bei Weekly, Shigeharu Higashi of Cultural News, and George Johnston of Nikkei Nation.

This program is presented by the Japanese American National Museum with The Rafu Shimpo , Nichi Bei Foundation, Cultural News, and Nikkei Nation.

Sponsored by DCA, LA County Arts, and The Nippon Foundation.
