Citizen Min in New Mexico

Citizen Min in New Mexico commemorates an event of national significance—the posthumous award of a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Minoru (Min) Yasui, one of the heroes of Japanese American civil rights beginning in the World War II era of internment camps. It also presents a little-known event, a historic encounter between Min and Senator Pete Domenici in Albuquerque in 1984. At 6 pm on Friday, May 6, Min’s daughter, Holly Yasui, offers a special presentation as a Free First Friday Evening event. Museum admission is free to everyone from 5 to 8 pm. The program is sponsored by the New Mexico Japanese American Citizens League and funded by a generous grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council.
