To remember the forced incarceration of 120,313 Japanese Americans in the post-Pearl Harbor hysteria that swept the country, we will make our own pilgrimage to Manzanar on Saturday, April 27, 2019. It will mark a return to reclaim “a horrible, painful memory,” as Margaret Cho notes, but also to build community and to resolve anew never to let this happen again.
The Claremont Colleges community is cordially invited to participate free of charge. The trip will depart Claremont in the early morning and return at night. Space is limited and sign up on a first come first serve basis is required.
