Public speaker Sam Mihara will share his personal account of the Japanese American imprisonment and its civil rights abuses during WWII on Saturday, May 7, at 2:00 pm in the Main Library Community Room (600 E. Mariposa).
By Events Manager
When World War II broke out, the United States government forced Sam and his family to move, first to a detention camp in Pomona, and then to a remote prison camp in Northern Wyoming, where they stayed for three years.
He developed the Memories of Heart Mountain presentation to educate people and help ensure such civil rights violations don’t happen again.
