Nobuko Miyamoto on West Side Story


Nobuko Miyamoto known as Joanne Miya at the time is now associated with activism, but she was once an actress and was in West Side Story. We covered some of her activist projects from years past including music and her work with the Black Panthers and Asian American groups. The Rafu Shimpo Article chronicles her experience and how it led to what she does today. Can you believe she was in this film 50 years ago? That’s her second from the right.
