Conversation with 3.5 generation Japanese-American artist Michelle Kumata about her time at Wing Luke Museum, her project on the Japanese Diaspora in the US and Brazil, her work "Song For Generations", and how it deals with the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII.

Plus, shoutouts to Wa Na Wari, Elisheba Johnson and Inye Wokoma, Roger Shimomura, Erin Shigaki, and Louie Gong
