Japanese-American Day of Remembrance: IU and Japanese Americans: Banned Then, Storytellers Today.

On Feb. 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing the internment of tens of thousands of American citizens of Japanese ancestry. Sharing in the hysteria, the IU Board of Trustees voted on May 9, 1942 to bar the admission of Japanese American students to IU. What is the university’s relationship with this history? Please join us for a discussion of this history with a screening of The Orange Story and excerpts from Seppuku, films both made by fourth-generation Japanese American storytellers. How can stories make a difference?
