The Densho interview team is on the move again. This week they headed for the Midwest to collect life stories of Nisei who chose to make Minnesota their home after the World War II incarceration. Tom, Dana, and Megan have set up a studio in Minneapolis and are working with the Twin Cities JACL chapter, who recruited good interviewees to document their community’s history.

We hear interviewing is going smoothly, and the Minnesotans are making our Seattle crew feel at home. Densho staffers will report details. In the meantime, here are photos of a yard sale the Minneapolis folks held to raise money for recording the digital interviews. True grassroots fundraising!
