The University of Washington will host a special screening with Norman Mineta, featuring the recently released documentary, “Norman Mineta and His Legacy: An American Story.”
Mineta is the former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and former U.S. Secretary of Transportation.
There will be a discussion with him and the co-producers of the documentary, which details Mineta’s upbringing and his family’s removal to a World War II mass-incarceration camp. As a congressman, he was instrumental in achieving Japanese Americans redress through the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988.
Admission is free and open to the public.
