On February 19, 1942, two and a half months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 authorizing the forced internment of Japanese Americans on the West Coast in “relocation centers".  These two acclaimed films document experiences of Japanese American internment, a timely reminder of a still shocking yet often obscured chapter in U.S. history.

Presented by the Reed College American Studies program. Free and open to the public.
