SDJACL Community Dialogue - December 8, 2022
Thursday, December 8, 2022, 6:30-8:00 pm. RSVP to email@example.com for the Zoom link.
The San Diego JACL invites you to meet Gary Sosa, Associate Professor at Palomar College. Prof. Sosa has been an English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor for over 30 years and has a degree in English and in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. While he was born and raised in Los Angeles, his ancestors came from Mexico and Japan. Living abroad for many years (mostly Asia) and teaching immigrant and international students for all of his teaching career have made him keenly aware of racial problems and ethnic divisions not only in the US but all over the world. Prof. Sosa enjoys communicating with people from other countries and cultures and equally enjoys helping people across cultures and languages understand and appreciate one another. He will share his discovery of and search for his Japanese-Mexican roots and an overview of the Japanese immigration to Mexico, followed by some conversation about genealogical research and multiracial Japanese Americans.
