Host: Japan America Society of Greater Cincinnati
Celebrate AAPI Heritage Month with a movie screening of George Takei’s Allegiance hosted by Filipino American Association of Southern Ohio and the Japan America Society of Greater Cincinnati.
Allegiance illuminates one of American history’s lesser known chapters as it tells the story of Sam Kimura, transported back nearly six decades to when his younger self and his sister Kei fought to stay connected to their heritage, their family and themselves after Japanese Americans were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. An important story told with great resonance and intimacy, Allegiance explores the ties that bind us, the struggle to persevere and the overwhelming power of forgiveness and, most especially, love.
