The Wat Misaka Story

DVD - 2010
Rate this:
"A documentary feature about Wat Misaka, the first person of color to be drafted into what is now the NBA by the 1947 Knicks--and how he got there. Overcoming the national political climate surrounding World War II, Wat was a star player for the University of Utah 1944 and 1947 national championship teams, taking 2 years off in between to serve in the U.S. Army. His perseverance and loyalty to his teammates, other Nisei friends (including those interned at Topaz), and his family are a testament to the unflappable Japanese American spirit."--Container.
