St. Louis Storytelling Festival: The Japanese-American Experience of WWII | University of Missouri Extension @ The Venture Café Gathering (Havana)

As part of the 39th annual St. Louis Storytelling Festival, hear Featured Storyteller Alton Chung in a special storytelling performance. Explore what it was like for the Issei and the Nisei (first and second generation Japanese-Americans) in Hawaii and in the Continental US during WWII. These stories offer a glimpse into aftermath of Pearl Harbor, the Internment Camps, and the creation of the all Japanese-American 100th Battalion and 442 Regimental Combat Team. For its size and duration of service, the 442 RCT is the most highly decorated unit in the history of the US Military.
