Stories of the Sun Café
STORIES OF THE SUN CAFE is a collaborative project being explored by ASIAN STORY THEATER in conjunction with the JAPANESE AMERICAN HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF SAN DIEGO and leaders of San Diego's Chinese-American community. We are looking to meet with people who have stories, either first-hand or as recounted by family members, related to the historic Sun Cafe. Did you work there, meet/eat there, remember your favorite menu item? We would also like to talk to people of Japanese or Chinese ancestry with memories of living in downtown San Diego during the 1930s, 40s or 50s. All contributions will be included in the JAHSSD archive of oral histories. To participate, or to be updates as the project evolves, send email with the subject “Sun Cafe” to firstname.lastname@example.org. There may be additional information at the website of the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego (www.jahssd.org).
Limited tour dates for MAY 2013 (Asian Heritage month) are available. Contact Asian Story Theater directly, or Young Audiences of San Diego to arrange a performance.
