Illustrating the Legacy of the 442nd: with Tony Moy & the Nisei Veteran’s Committee | Speaker Series
November 18, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆, 𝗡𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 𝟭𝟴, 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟮 𝗮𝘁 𝟳 𝗽.𝗺. – 𝟴 𝗽.𝗺. 𝗣𝗧 𝘃𝗶𝗮 𝗭𝗼𝗼𝗺 (𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻-𝗶𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱) 𝗶𝗻 𝗘𝗻𝗴𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗵
Bringing history alive with evocative visuals, color, and symbolism, Tony Moy created his webtoon, “4Forty2nd – The Lost Battalion’ to highlight the legacy of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II. This month, the Northwest Nikkei Museum will discuss the creative process with Moy as part of our monthly Speaker Series.
Moy was introduced to the Nisei Veteran’s Committee (NVC), which shared their deep knowledge and understanding of the 442nd’s history — a regiment that served their country valiantly, while their families were forcibly incarcerated by Executive Order 9066. A representative of the NVC will also be joining us at this month’s Speaker Series, so please look forward to hearing more about the group’s history as well!
✅ Register today!
