Civil Conversation: Owning Our History - Japanese Internment

Thursday, September 19, 2019

In 1942, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing the incarceration of thousands of residents of the western states with Japanese ancestry, both immigrants and citizens alike. The legacies of that decision are still echoing within the American consciousness. Dakota Russell, Executive Director of the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, will talk about the ramifications of the Japanese internment to those who went through it and for the country. A discussion will follow. Please plan to take part on Thursday, September 19, 6:30 pm in the Community Room. Photo: Kunio Yamamoto facing Heart Mountain, 1944.
