Time of Remembrance
From Jeff Layne on March 12th, 2018
A few weeks after the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Japanese and Americans of Japanese descent were taken from their homes to “War Relocation Centers.” From January 30-August 2, 2018, this event was the subject of the exhibit, “Imprisoned at Home – Reflections on Civil Liberties: The incarceration of Japanese Americans at Tule Lake,” at the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology on the CSU, Chico campus. A related lecture-film series included this presentation, with historic photos, by Marielle Tsukamoto. At the age of five, Ms. Tuskamoto and her family was incarcerated in a relocation camp in Arkansas. She addresses both the history of the camps and how redress was achieved after a decades-long struggle.
