Don't miss out on "The Volunteer" screening at the Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham! Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 26th at 10:10 AM.

The Volunteer is a heartbreaking exploration into the devastating, life-long psychological impact of repressed racial trauma, as endured by a Japanese-American soldier maneuvering the multi-faceted realities of American anti-Asian racism during the Vietnam War. It is also a stirring tribute to the cross-racial bonds of military brotherhood forged in the shared anguish of racial oppression.

by Dr. Kelly Chong, Professor and Chairperson, Department of Sociology at the University of Kansas
