More About the Presentation:
This year we celebrate the centennial of Yuri Kochiyama, a woman who is remembered in very different ways depending on where you’re standing. In Harlem, NY, she is famous for her revolutionary activism, and in her hometown of San Pedro, CA, she is remembered as the favorite daughter with unlimited school spirit. This presentation reconciles the dichotomy of Kochiyama’s identities and shows how they were both rooted in her love and idealism.
