Let it Not Happen Again: Lessons of the Japanese American Exclusion

Location: Yakima

2015 Tieton Drive, Yakima, WA 98902

What led to the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans, and how can we prevent similar tragedies? Join us at the Yakima Valley Museum at Noon for a FREE public discussion presented by Clarence Moriwaki, President, Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community.  Clarence Moriwaki shares the story of Bainbridge Island—the origin point of the Japanese American exclusion—to provide a human, historical account of this national tragedy, and to ask the question: Are there parallels to what’s happening in America now?  For more information please visit https://www.humanities.org/event/let-it-not-happen-again-lessons-of-the-japanese-american-exclusion-4 /.
