Hidden Histories of Nikkei Sports

September 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us for a night with local Seattle sports organizations Rokka Ski Club, Tengu Club, and a special guest appearance from Kerry Yo Nakagawa, founder of the Nisei Baseball Research Project. Each club will go over their history and come together to discuss the importance of community involvement through sports! Each sport has a rich history within the Japanese American community starting before the incarceration and coming back together after the war. Attendees will hear from each representative and maybe even find a new club to join!
