Not Yo’ Butterfly – Nobuko Miyamoto

Not Yo Butterfly

July 22, 2021 - 3:14 am

Nobuko Miyamoto is an activist, music and dance artist, who found her political and artistic voice in the Asian American movement. As a child, she and her parents were incarcerated in the internment camps.  Later, she performed on Broadway and has since produced many creative works. Over the past few decades, Miyamoto has been facilitating workshops to encourage her community to tell their personal stories.  Listen to Miyamoto’s reflection of the past year and the importance of expressing your story.

Miyamoto penned a book, Not Yo’ Butterfly: My Long Song of Relocation, Race, Love and Revolution.  The Seattle Public Library, Elliott Bay Book Company, Densho Project and the Japanese American Citizens League present an event with Miyamoto on Thursday, July 22, 2021.  You can register for the event at this link.
