March 25th A.D.O.R.E. meeting - Archived

The next A.D.O.R.E. (A Dialogue On Race and Ethnicity) meeting will be held from 12:00-2:00pm on Sunday, March 25th in the First Unitarian Church sanctuary. The meeting has been moved to 12:00pm because a potluck lunch will happen that day, following the service. The A.D.O.R.E. group will watch and discuss the documentary, “Proof of Loyalty: Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawaii.” Here, from Pamela Rotner Sakamoto, author of “Midnight in Broad Daylight: A Japanese American Family Caught Between Two Worlds,” is a good description of the film. “Proof of Loyalty, the story of elite translator Kazuo Yamane, is a superb lens to view the WWII contribution of Japanese American soldiers from Hawaii. Through stunning, little-known footage and precise narration, Proof of Loyalty captures the sad irony that those we discriminate against may be among our most able, tireless, and faithful. A meticulous, powerful, and all too timely film.”

All are welcome to join us!
