WWII Japanese American Incarceration and Why it Matters Today

  • ACC Senior Services 7334 Park City Drive Sacramento, CA, 95831 United States (map)

2019 marks the 77th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of 120,000 innocent Japanese Americans. Tom Ikeda, Founding Executive Director of Densho, will discuss how the injustice happened during a time of fear and how we are seeing similar fears appearing in America today. We will view videos from extensive Densho oral history collection demonstrating the lives and resistance of Japanese American community.

This event, in partnership with Jan Ken Po Cultural Association is part of ACC’s "Film of Resistance” series supported by a grant from the APIs Rise Fund and the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.
