Pacific Citizens collects key writings of Larry S. Tajiri, a multitalented journalist, essayist, and popular culture maven. He and his wife, Guyo, became leading figures in Nisei political life as the central purveyors of news for and about Japanese Americans during World War II. The Tajiris also created the Pacific Citizen, a forum for liberal and progressive views on politics, civil rights, and democracy.

Pacific Citizens contextualizes the Tajiris’ output, providing a telling portrait of these two dedicated journalists and serving as a reminder of the public value of the ethnic community press.

Q&A to follow with Dr. Robinson and former Pacific Citizen Editor Harry Honda.

Free with Museum admission. Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
