In his new book, "The Unsung Great: Stories of Extraordinary Japanese Americans," scholar and journalist Greg Robinson showcases the lives and achievements of relatively unknown but remarkable people in Nikkei history.
Drawn primarily from Robinson’s popular writings in the Nichi Bei Weekly and Discover Nikkei, "The Unsung Great" offers entertaining and compelling stories that challenge one-dimensional views of Japanese Americans. This collection breaks new ground by devoting attention to Nikkei beyond the West Coast—including the vibrant communities of New York and Chicago, as well as the little-known history of Japanese Americans in the US South.

In this book launch event, Robinson—a native New Yorker—will explore the unknown aspects of the diverse and artistically vibrant Nikkei community in prewar and wartime New York. He will then be joined by artists Tomie Arai and Sheila Hamanaka in a conversation moderated by Brian Niiya, Densho Content Director.

Co-presented by Densho, Japanese American Association, NYC DOR Committee, New York JACL, University of Washington Press, and Elliott Bay Book Company
