JANM Stands in Solidarity w/
Black Lives Matter
A Statement by Secretary Norman Y. Mineta
LOS ANGELES, CA –The Japanese American National Museum stands w/ Black communities across the country & we redouble our commitment to opposing racism, prejudice & discrimination in all its forms. We will continue to find ways to contribute to the ongoing dialogue about race & an ethical reckoning with the disparities in our society. 
As we feel the anguish at the murder of George Floyd and the anger at the systemic racism that permeates our country, it is clear today that none of us can stand back and dispassionately watch as more black people are killed. 
Japanese Americans are acutely aware of the damaging results of unresponsiveness & indifference from Americans in positions of privilege. During World War II, few people in the U.S. spoke out when the government violated the Constitutional rights of 120,000 individuals of Japanese ancestry by forcibly removing us from our homes & incarcerating us in American concentration camps. 
At this time, all of us must take on the monumental challenge of overcoming centuries of prejudice & social inequities. It will require courage for every one of us to confront our own bias & indifference. It will require organizations to join the fight & speak out. It will take all of us to fundamentally change our country’s approach to race & inequality. 
Black Lives Matter. What we do now matters.
Secretary Norman Y. Mineta
Chair, Board of Trustees
Japanese American National Museum

RISE on KPFK "a weekly creative (J)azz celebration of African roots, social consciousness & spiritual transcendence".
