Need the perfect personalized gift to give your family this holiday season? Join the REEL NIKKEI STORIES: A Nikkei Family Legacy Project workshop on December 13, and make your commitment to create a family legacy gift!

REEL NIKKEI STORIES is designed to engage young people to take an active role and empower them with the confidence, training and tools to interview, video document and share the untold stories of living relatives before their family histories are lost forever. Although many documentaries, books and oral histories have been produced to preserve and teach the Japanese American experience during World War II and in internment camps, your family’s personal story may still remain untold and undocumented. By interviewing and video documenting your elders’ stories, you will be able to start a dialogue in your family and learn first-hand accounts of the Japanese American experience.

This holiday season give the gift that matters most to your family and take this opportunity to capture your family history from your living relatives. For more information on how to create your family legacy project please contact Ali at 415-567-5505 or email Akagawa@JCCCNC.org.
