Let It Not Happen Again

May 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

In March of 1942, 227 Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from their homes on Bainbridge Island by the US Army. 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? Moriwaki uses historical images, including historical and current propaganda, to explore the fear, racism, and failure of political leadership that led to these unconstitutional actions during World War II, and why we must not let it happen again. This presentation is part of Humanities Washington’s Speakers Bureau program and sponsored by the Friends of the Lacey Timberland Library.
