Frank Chin at the Nisei Naysayer Book Signing

"Having studied assiduously the archival materials on WRA camps and painstakingly compiled an impressive oral historical record of pertinent participants and observers, [Frank] Chin is arguably the most knowledgeable person on draft resistance mounted from behind barbed wire."

- James Matsumoto Omura, Nisei Naysayer: The Memoir of Militant Japanese American Journalist Jimmie Omura (edited by Arthur Hansen), p. 149.

The following pictures were taken at the Japanese American National Museum regarding the book launch of Nisei Naysayer (buy your copy straight from the publisher here; Amazon link here).  Enjoy:
