Japanese American’s wartime experience stage “Defining Courage” will come to Aratani Theatre, 244 South San Pedro Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 on Sunday, July 23 at 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm. (3:00 pm show was sold out)
“Defining Courage” is a journey into the legacy of the Nisei Soldier, Americans of Japanese ancestry who served in the segregated military units of the 100th IB, 442nd RCT, MIS, and 522nd FAB. Considered the greatest fighting units in American military history, most have never heard their extraordinary stories.
“Defining Courage” is produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Jeff MacIntyre and ABC7 News Anchor David Ono.
Join Jeff and David, as they immerse you into the tragic, yet uplifting world of these heroes who fought prejudice at home and the enemy abroad. You’ll fly over World War II battlefields in Italy, France, Japan, and Germany, in an unforgettable live event that includes: Stunning Cinematography, Live Music & Choir, Historic Film, and Eyewitness Interviews.
SEE, HEAR, and EXPERIENCE their incredible heroics through this piece of innovative storytelling. Far from a history lesson, it is a testament to inner strength, one that inspires us in our search for courage in today’s world.
This performance is presented by the Story Boldly, the Japanese American Citizens League, the Japanese American National Museum, Outside In Theatre, and the Umami Fund.
