Voices of Incarceration: The Enduring Impact of EO 9066
Eighty years after President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, the impact of the resulting unconstitutional incarceration of approximately 120,000 Japanese persons is still felt today. In remembrance of the Nikkei immigrants and citizens who endured the wartime imprisonment, their descendants and allies will read selected testimonies of incarcerees included in When Can We Go Back to America? Voices of Japanese American Incarceration During World War II by Susan H. Kamei. To hear their words of fear and anguish, as well as those of resolve and hope, is to hear a message relevant to our current turbulent times about the importance of protecting civil liberties for all.
