Ever wonder what it was like to be alive in 1935? Or to be imprisoned by the government for three years just for being Japanese American?
How about being the only person of color in your university classroom? Or being the first Asian American promoted to a high-level management position of a prestigious technology company?
All of these moments and more make up the life of Ron Osajima, an 85-year-old father, grandfather, husband, and retiree whose experiences of oppression, assimilation, and empowerment tell an infrequently told story of what being an American looks and feels like.
From Oppression to Empowerment: A Japanese American Life Story by Ron Osajima, will be available on Amazon soon
