Who is an American?  Join us for a day-long exploration through film and first-person testimony of this explosive question that the U.S. government used as a wedge to divide the Japanese American community during WWII. Rarely-seen historical footage edited by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Emiko Omori will accompany the testimony of camp survivors, activists, and scholars about a hidden history. Video footage from the recent unified Japanese American protest at a south Texas immigrant detention facility will conclude the day.

Questions of loyalty and duty to family and to country caused fractures in the incarcerated Japanese American community during World War II. Regarding the question of “Americanness,” an organization of young people, the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) had their answer - an answer that many disputed - which caused fractures that remained for decades. The U.S. government exploited that rift, resulting in huge upheavals and conflicts that still can be felt today.

In this forum, we will examine the origins of these conflicts and highlight courageous individual and collective acts of protest and resistance. How can we move toward reconciliation and healing of the deep wounds of division? What are ways the community can come together to stand up for communities that are being targeted today?

Join us for a compelling forum to learn from our past and move forward together.

Bento lunch will be included.
