January 6, ’17: Rural Sociologist Isao Fujimoto in conversation
Isao Fujimoto’s immigrant family found refuge amongst Washington State’s Yakima Indians, farming until forcibly removed to a World War II concentration camp. As a freshly-minted rural sociologist hired by UC Davis in the turbulent 1960s, Isao was hot for some world changing. Fujimoto’s emboldened students ignited farmers market and organic food movements, confronting Central Valley agribusiness power. Join Isao and “Down on the Farm” host Tom Willey in conversation.
