Dianne Fukami is an Emmy award-winning documentary and television producer and a graduate of U.C. Berkeley’s School of Journalism. She has been on nearly 20 trips to Asia and has been invited as a TEDx speaker to talk about her experiences. In 2006 she gained insight into the Islamic religion when she began a three-year commitment at Link TV to work on an initiative about the challenges facing Muslim Americans in a post-9/11 nation. That experience has informed her subsequent documentary work in drawing similarities between Muslim Americans today and the Japanese American incarceration during World War II. She is on the faculty at Academy of Art University in San Francisco teaching TV and multimedia production. Her most recent documentary film “Norman Mineta and His Legacy: An American Story” was broadcast nationally on PBS in May 2019.
