Nikkei Rising, featuring the voices of younger Japanese Americans, is presenting the Yon-Say podcast as part of Tadaima! A Community Virtual Pilgrimage.
For those who may not be aware, “Yon-Say” is a play on words off of the term, yonsei, which means fourth generation Japanese American.
In episode 3 of their podcast, entitled, “An American Nightmare,” hosts Yoko Morishita Fedorenko and Jonnie Narita spoke with two of our own, Jason Fujii and Lauren Matsumoto.
Jason, a member of the Manzanar Committee, currently serves as the coordinator for our Manzanar At Dusk program, while Lauren, who graduated last summer from the University of California, San Diego, served for three years as one of the student organizers for our annual Manzanar At Dusk program while she was a member of the UCSD Nikkei Student Union.
