FREE Webcast for the 2013 Day of Remembrance at the Smithsonian presented by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center
Saturday, February 23, 2013, 1:30-3:30 p.m. EST
Senator Inouye's life and place in American history is an opportunity to understand the arc of the Asian American experience over the past 100 years. The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center is proud to host a special forum to discuss the life and legacy of Senator Daniel Inouye. His journey from "enemy alien" to war hero to President pro tempore, his advocacy for civil rights, the U.S. military, Native Hawaiians, American Indians, the people of Hawaii and others, and his work in the Senate all form a legacy that will remain alive for generations.
This is a great opportunity for you, our amazing Smithsonian Affiliates, to join the conversation by organizing a viewing at your site and tweeting comments, questions and memories of Senator Inouye from your community.
