Sushi & Sake Fest
Densho's 2014 Sushi & Sake Fest was great fun! A big thank you to Title Sponsor Tateuchi Foundation, other sponsors, and hundreds of other generous supporters who helped make last week's Sushi & Sake Fest a success. A special thank you also to Hiroshi's Catering, Take-out & Deli, I Love Wasabi, Kozue Japanese Restaurant, Nishino Restaurant, Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar, Vinum Wine & Spirits Importing & Distributing, and BOSSHIKO.
Sushi & Sake Fest is an annual fundraiser for Densho: The Japanese American Legacy Project. We use digital technology to preserve the testimonies of Japanese Americans who were unjustly incarcerated during World War II. The proceeds from the event support:
Densho's successful teacher workshop will be converted into an online course to reach thousands of teachers in 2015.
The online Encyclopedia of the World War II experience of Japanese Americans will expand to over 1,000 multimedia articles by 2015.
Photograph and Document Collection
Densho Digital Repository of historic photographs and documents is searchable from Google and shareable through Facebook. The collection will continue to grow with more photographs, documents and videos.
Densho is expanding its interview collection through partnerships with Oregon Nikkei Endowment in Portland and the Manzanar National Historic Site.
