KCC History Professor Receives Publication Grant

KCC History Professor Kelli Nakamura successfully applied for a Publication Assistance Grant to fund the publication on her manuscript, which explores issues of race, class, criminality, and ethnic identity within the Japanese community in Hawai‘i from the arrival of the first Japanese migrants in 1886 through World War II and its immediate aftermath. In addition to partnering with the University of Hawaii, Kelli will be working with the other Japanese-American serving organizations in the islands to raise awareness of these issues among the general public.
