June 29, Thurs. 7pm, Unfinished Business – The Japanese American Internment Cases, a 1986 documentary directed by Steven Okazaki.
In 1942, the U.S. government rounded up more than 110,000 Japanese Americans on the west coast and forced them into concentration camps. Three young men defied this and served jail time. This film is of their fight to overturn their sentences 40 years later.
Today with a fascist regime in power, there is an urgent need to learn from this history and to commit ourselves to act to stop what the U.S. did to the Japanese from happening again to anyone. Never again! Part of the film series,”America Was Never Great.”
