Stories of the past and present for tomorrow
On September 24, 2021, Asian Ministries of American Baptist Home Mission Societies and the Alliance of Asian American Baptist Churches cosponsored a “Change-Makers” event with three outstanding speakers: Yosh Nakagawa, Rev. Katie Choy-Wong, and Rev. Dr. Ken Fong. This small-group learning experience focuses on Yosh Nakagawa’s comments to the participants.
Yosh Nakagawa is a member of Japanese Baptist Church in Seattle, WA, where he was put in the internment camp in Minidoka, ID, for four years upon President Roosevelt’s executive order 9066 on February 19, 1942. After his release from the camp, Yosh has never stopped speaking out against the injustice of the internment experience and he has mentored many ABC leaders.
