Course Description:

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the issuance of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin Roosevelt, which led to the internment of 110,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans. Given the current political environment, a look back at this dark period in our history can help us better understand the immigration and citizenship issues we face today. We'll examine internment through the lens of family experiences in the camps and also discuss the legal and political ramifications of Roosevelt’s history-changing order.

Please note: This offering has been moved to the First Presbyterian Church of Monterey.
