This event was planned and organized by the members of associate professor Paul Nam’s HIST248: Modern Japan as part of our unit on the incarceration of Japanese and Japanese American during WWII by the US government. It is the culmination of this unit, which was preceded by a field trip to the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo; a trip to Oxy’s Special Collections and Archives, and an overnight field trip to Manzanar, CA.<br />
