During WWI, the U.S. Government incarcerated nearly 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry, in desolate sites in the interior of the United States. Japanese Americans in Hawaii lived under martial law. There is no one story of the impact these actions had on Japanese Americans, and their reactions to these events and their stories are myriad and nuanced.
Join us on as we explore these events with Judge Marilyn Hall Patel, filmmaker Stacey Hayashi, and other experts!
