South Bay Events 2017
On February 15 through March 3, 2017 Rolling Counterpoint traveled to a variety of venues across the South Bay, including De Anza College in Cupertino and the Japanese American Museum San Jose (JAMsj) and Parque de los Pobladores in San Jose. Hattori invited community members to join him inside his teahouse to share their experiences of exclusion and social division, and address the question “what does belonging mean to you?”
This series of events was co-organized by the Audrey Edna Butcher Civil Liberties Education Initiative of the California History Center at De Anza College, and presented in association with San Jose Japanese American community’s commemoration of the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which authorized the mass forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.
