The Taniguchis and Texas: Austin’s Japanese American History

Join us on Tuesday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. as we celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month with a panel discussion about the legacy of the Taniguchi family in Austin. Recounting the lives and experiences of the Taniguchi family across three generations, we will discuss how their family narrative addresses a broader state and national history of Japanese American immigration, farming, internment, and resettlement. Joining us in our discussion will be Evan Taniguchi of Taniguchi Architects and William McWhorter from the Texas Historical Commission.
