"Culture Identity Among People of Mixed Heritage"

With San Diego being a city home to a variety of people from different parts of the world, culture identity remains an important topic to those just arriving and those that have called San Diego home for their whole lives. July’s Sake Talk will explore this topic further by discussing cultural identity among people of mixed heritage. A panel of community leaders and local San Diegans that identify as a person of mixed heritage will share and discuss their experiences growing up and how it impacts their lives today. 

The evening will be held in the Japanese Friendship Garden's Inamori Pavilion with doors opening at 4:30 PM. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A portion with the evening concluding with a social where guests will be treated to sake and hors d'oeuvres.
