The Japanese American Experience in Minnesota presented by Sally Sudo

May 23 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

According to the U.S. census, in 1940 there were only 51 people of Japanese ancestry living in the entire state of Minnesota. Today, that number is in the thousands. Sally Sudo, retired Minneapolis public school teacher and survivor of an American concentration camp, will share her story of why her family and hundreds of other Japanese American families like hers decided to resettle in Minnesota after WWII, and the hardships and discrimination they faced trying to make a life here.
