Satsuki Ina – The Poet and the Silk Girl: A Memoir of Love, Imprisonment, and Protest

June 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

Joined in-conversation with Andrew Way Leong.

The Poet and the Silk Girl by Satsuki Ina, illustrates through one family’s saga the generational struggle of Japanese Americans who resisted racist oppression, fought for the restoration of their rights, and clung to their full humanity in the face of adversity. With psychological insight, Ina excavates the unmentionable, recovering a chronicle of resilience amidst one of the severest blows to American civil liberties.

Lyrical and gripping, this cautionary tale implores us to prevent the repetition of atrocity, pairing healing and protest with galvanizing power.
