Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017
Time: 7:00 p.m.
History, Honor, Healing and Hope - The timeless - and timely - story of the devastating impact of fear, prejudice, intolerance and failure of political leadership during World War II, and the hopeful, healing power of redemption to let it not happen again. Moriwaki explores the history of Japanese American immigration, establishment and impact of the unconstitutional incarceration, and by using powerful historical and contemporary images, compares reaction to WWII with current events.
Clarence Moriwaki is the president of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community and is a founder and past president of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial Association. For nearly 20 years, Clarence has worked to create and develop the Memorial and earn designation as a National Historic Site. For his efforts, in 2008 he was awarded the National Parks Conservation Association’s highest accolade, the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas Award.
Clarence is the principal of Forest Edge Communications and he has served CEO of the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Washington, campaign manager for the ACLU of Washington, and as a senior aide and spokesperson for President Bill Clinton, Governor Mike Lowry, Congressman Jay Inslee, Lt. Governor John Cherberg, the Washington State Senate, Kitsap County, Sound Transit and the Portland Rose Festival Association.
Clarence was also a news reporter and program producer for three Seattle radio stations, a member of the Tukwila City Council, candidate for the Washington State Senate and Kitsap County Commissioner. He has served on the board of directors for numerous state-wide, regional and local organizations and he is the state’s first and only 12 year-old Eagle Scout.
