Celebrate 120 Years of History of the Seattle Japanese Language School! | Speaker Series

July 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

In July of 2022, the Speaker Series will be spotlighting the Seattle Japanese Language School (SJLS) as it celebrates its 120th anniversary! Formerly known as Kokugo Gakkō, the school was originally founded as a way for Nisei children of Issei immigrants to learn about Japanese language and culture. At this event, we’ll explore the storied legacy of the language school through historic photographs and memorabilia from our Northwest Nikkei Museum Collection. Did you know that the school was forced to cease operation during World War II? Did you know that the building served as temporary housing for the Nikkei community after the war? Learn about these historic events and so much more at this month’s Speaker Series!

✅ Register today!

(Registration will close at 5 pm (PT) on July 14, 2022)
