Jimmy Naganuma

Born May 23, 1936, in Callao, Peru. Spent early childhood in Peru, where parents ran a laundry business, and father was a prominent community leader. During World War II, the FBI arrested Jimmy's father and the entire family was placed on a ship and sent to the Department of Justice camp at Crystal City, Texas. After leaving camp, the family was not allowed to return to Peru, so they moved to San Francisco with the help and sponsorship of a Shinto church reverend.
