Once again, we’re very, very late with this, but video from the 2012 Manzanar At Dusk program, held on April 28, 2012, is now available.
For those who may be unfamiliar with the Manzanar At Dusk program, or have never attended, you are really missing out. The event differs significantly from the Manzanar Pilgrimage, held earlier in the day, in that this event is interactive in nature. Participants from all ages and ethnic backgrounds get to hear stories from those who were unjustly incarcerated in one of the ten American concentration camps, or other confinement sites, during World War II. In small discussion groups, participants also talk about the lessons that can be learned from the Japanese American Incarceration experience, and how they might apply to what’s going on today.
