2016 Manzanar At Dusk – In Photos

Following a bit later in the day after the annual Manzanar Pilgrimage is the Manzanar At Dusk program, an interactive event in which participants can hear first-hand stories from those who were incarcerated in America’s concentration camps during World War II, and talk about the issues surrounding that experience and their relevance to what’s happening in our communities today.

The following are some of the sights from the 2016 Manzanar At Dusk program, April 30, 2016.

Manzanar At Dusk is co-sponsored by the Nikkei Student Unions at California State University, Long Beach, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of California, San Diego.

The event, held at Lone Pine High School, approximately nine miles south of the Manzanar National Historic Site, is attended by a very diverse crowd, in terms of ethnicity, age, and gender, that ranges from 200 to 400 people each year.

In case you missed it, video of the day’s events is available at VIDEO: 47th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage and 2016 Manzanar At Dusk.
