Honoring Alameda's Japanese-American History
Screening of Digital Stories from Alameda's Japanese Community

Saturday, October 6, 2012
2:00 - 4:00 pm

1550 Oak Street, Regina K. Stafford Room
Alameda, CA 94501

From the 19th century until World War II, Alameda had a thriving Japantown with  its own bath houses, baseball teams, and businesses.  But today, even longtime Alameda residents know very little about this Japantown, or the ways Alameda offers a unique perspective on the Japanese-American experience.

With digital tools, the Alameda Free Library has recorded a collection of stories
told by Alameda's Japanese-American community members.

Now the public is invited to view this collection and meet the interviewees
who have shared their history.

This project was made possible with support from CAL HUMANITIES, an 
independent non-profit state partner of the National Endowment for the
Humanities.  For more information, visit www.calhum.org.
