David Kishiyama

Following in the footsteps of his mother who reported on Japanese community issues during her time as a working journalist, David Kishiyama developed an interest in journalism, studied at UCLA, began his career as an L.A. Times copyeditor, and soon began to write his own pieces on topics such as Japanese American redress.  In this interview, Kishiyama discusses his involvement in the making of AAJA, from the first interest meeting to the first convention that he and his co-founders hosted, as well as their original intentions with AAJA’s direction.
