Oppression and Resistance in America’s World War II Concentration Camps
Wednesday, February 24, 2021 | 12:00 pm EST | Zoom

Many historians and Japanese Americans cite the loss of US citizenship rights as the biggest injustice of the camps, and many believe cooperation and not resistance was the norm. Join Dr. Gary Okihiro, Professor Emeritus of international and public affairs at Columbia University and a Visiting Professor of American studies at Yale University, as he outlines the nature of the oppression in that historical experience, and the resistance posed to those oppressive acts.
