On February 19, 1942, the issue of Executive Order 9066 led to the mass relocation and internment of hundred of thousands of Japanese Americans. Manzanar is one of the couple Japanese incarceration camps that remains and marks the epitome of societal racial prejudice and injustice in America. On Saturday April 29th, we will attend the annual Manzanar Pilgrimage at the actual site of the camp and learn about its history to pay tribute to this past, but never forgotten, national tragedy. Then we will participate in the program offered there at the site called Manzanar at Dusk where we can discuss and listen to stories from former internees and other students/teachers/community members. The trip is sure to be a profound learning experience and even more applicable to the contemporary racial tensions in today's society so don't miss out on this opportunity and join us!!
