During World War II, more than 120,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed from their homes, first to “Assembly Centers” like Tanforan and Santa Anita, and next to concentration camps. Many Japanese Americans, including Bay Area college students, were never able to return home.

On February 25 at 3:00pm, please join us for Remembering Resistance: Narratives of Wartime Memories and Japanese Incarceration, a virtual talk by Skyline College faculty members of Japanese descent. This month marks the 80th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the federal government’s incarceration order.

All members of the Skyline College community are invited to connect for intergenerational sharing and discussion for racial solidarity at this zoom link: https://smccd.zoom.us/J/4936699624, no registration is required.

Faculty interested in offering extra credit are also encouraged to promote the event to their students. Please direct any questions to Prof. Yonemura-Fabian at fabianr@smccd.edu. You’ll find more information here: https://guides.skylinecollege.edu/JapaneseAmericanIncarceration
