7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in the Community Room, Lower Level

Join this nationally-recognized duo as they kick off our What You Missed in History series! No-No Boy is a multimedia concert performed by Julian Saporiti and Erin Aoyama. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese American concentration camp survivors, his own family history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of Asian American experience, Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs in an effort to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside singer Erin Aoyama, a fellow Ph.D. student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at one of the 10 Japanese American concentration camps, No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely obscured within the American historical narrative. 

 

Performing everywhere from universities and cultural centers across the country to rural churches and bars, No-No Boy works to illuminate an understudied past and, in so doing, generate conversations about the present with diverse audiences. Using music to process their research and family legacies, Saporiti and Aoyama return often to a refrain they've heard spoken by those they've talked with who have lived through the trauma of war and incarceration: "Do not let this happen again." No registration required. Not recommended for people under 13 years old.

In the 15th century, the greatest empire in the history of the Americas rose to prominence and power.  Based in present-day Peru, the Inca Empire was a vast and successful state – ruled without benefit of money, the wheel, or a written language. This program, led by John Maietta, explores the fascinating spiritual and material culture of the Incas; the swift collapse of their society after the Spanish conquest of 1532; the rediscovery of the mountaintop wonders of Machu Picchu in 1911; and the persistence of Inca influence today. No registration necessary.
