The Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute’s (GVJCI) 2024 Day of Remembrance will highlight the history and stories of the Japanese American fishing village community of Terminal Island in San Pedro during WWII.

In a live in-person program on Saturday, February 24th from 2-4pm, the GVJCI will feature a documentary film about the history of Terminal Island followed by a panel discussion featuring Michael Enomoto, architect of the San Pedro Terminal Island Japanese Fishing Village Memorial, June Miyamoto Donovan, President of the Terminal Islander’s Club, and David Metzler, director of the documentary we are screening, and Edgar Award-winning author Naomi Hirahara will moderate the panel discussion and Q&A. 

We hope the community will come away with a stronger understanding of our local South Bay Japanese American history, as well as a desire to learn more from our community partners and Gardena Valley JCI.

Registration is NOT required and admission is free.


This program is partially funded by the UCLA Asian American Studies Center and the Aratani C.A.R.E. Award.
