Roy Miki, a professor of English at Simon Fraser University, is an award-winning poet and an influential scholar and editor. For many years, he was at the forefront of the struggle to obtain redress for Japanese Canadians interned during the Second World War. He helped begin a dialogue within his community and then took on important roles within the Japanese Canadian Centennial Project and the National Association of Japanese Canadians. In 2004, he published Redress: Inside the Japanese Canadian Call for Justice, a work that speaks directly about his personal experiences and that has created great awareness among Canadians about this chapter of our history.
