Roy Saigo On Internment And Diversity
A presidential candidate calls for excluding people of one religion from entering the country. College students insist on greater attention to minority needs, and succeed in convincing top campus leaders to resign.
Diversity, or at least efforts to secure it, has been in the news a lot of late.
Southern Oregon University President Roy Saigo took note. Saigo was on the receiving end of racial exclusion in his own life, spending time in an internment camp for Japanese-Americans as a child.
Now he urges non-exclusion and tolerance from his perch atop a college administration. Dr. Saigo joins us to explore his own background and some of the issues of diversity and tolerance making news these days.
