Play Ball – The Japanese American Experience and the National Pastime (Webinar) | JACL
May 7, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the JACL will bring together a panel of speakers who will unravel the rich history of baseball, and consider its significance for those who were wrongfully incarcerated during WWII. The extraordinary lessons that resulted from that time will be examined in order to understand how diversity within the sport can be better fostered today. Speakers, ranging from historians to advocates, will highlight the contributions of Japanese-American players and celebrate the mark that they left on the American Pastime.
