Norman Mineta and His Legacy: An American Story

Ohio Premiere

Directed by Dianne Fukami

United States, 56 minutes

Explore the extraordinary life of Norm Mineta and the grievous internment of Japanese during WWII through this inspirational and informative film. As a child, Mineta and his immigrant family were pulled from their home and shipped to a Wyoming camp to live out the war. Emerging with no bitterness, he dedicated his life to proving his loyalty as an American citizen, and to giving a voice to those that have none. From immigrant son to two-time presidential cabinet member, Mineta embodies the American story. See this film and next time you cross the street, you’ll think of Norm.

Scheduled to appear: Dianne Fukami and Debra Nakaomi
