“Journey of Heroes: Creating Manga about the 100th/442nd RCT.”

March 21, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Henke 325

Stacey Hayashi’s interest in Japanese American and Hawai‘i culture led to the development of a multimedia project celebrating the heroism and cultural significance of the 100th Battalion and 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Journey of Heroes (2012), the internationally-acclaimed and historically accurate manga, serves as the basis for her ultimate project: an eight-part miniseries to properly honor and commemorate the men of the 100th/442nd Regimental Combat Team and other segregated Japanese American units. In this talk, she will discuss the process of making this manga, collaboration with veterans and artists, and the ways she hopes this energetic genre will carry on an important historical story to younger generations.

Stacey T. Hayashi is a Hawai‘i-based serial entrepreneur and founder of the successful PainaGirl family of websites, which includes Hawaiian Wedding Shop. A former software engineer before starting her own company, Ms. Hayashi is one of the earliest pioneers in the development of internet-based businesses focused on the manufacturing and distribution of Hawaiian products, and brings a formidable set of planning and operational skills to both her technology-based businesses as well as the multitude of social and advocacy enterprises that she devotes her time to.
