Doubles: Japan and America's Intercultural Children

Community Issues Series
Video screening & panel discussion

Growing up in today’s society can be challenging, especially if one of your parents is from Japan and the other from America. How do these two cultures blend together? What is your identity? Where do you fit in culturally? These are some of the questions raised in Regge Life’s video, Doubles. Join us for the screening of this video followed by a thought-provoking panel discussion. This is a collaborative program between Little Tokyo Service Center, Los Angeles chapter of the Hapa Issues Forum, and the Museum. Free with Museum admission. Reservations required by October 1.
