Big Read Film Screening: Never Give Up by Holly Yasui

Thursday, March 11, 2021

Join us at 6:30 PM for the film and post-film Q & A with the director Holly Yasui. Description: Minoru Yasui, son of Japanese immigrants, challenged the forced removal from the West Coast and imprisonment of all persons of Japanese ancestry during World War II, and spent the remainder of his life advocating for, and mentoring, under-represented peoples. He was a lifelong defender of equal justice and civil rights for all. This documentary, narrated by George Takkei, will be followed by a Q and A with the director (and Min’s daughter) Holly Yasui.
