From early immigration at the dawn of the Meiji era to the present-day efforts to protect the remaining historic Japantowns, the saga of the Nikkei community is chronicled in film through the lens of vernacular newspapers serving the Japanese American community. The film is timely, coming after the recent 150th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese colonists to the mainland United States at the Wakamatsu tea and silk colony. Join the Center and the Zentoku Foundation for a special community screening of Paper Chase, the first ever documentary of the 150 years of Japanese American history here in America!
