In 1981, the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) heard the testimonies of Japanese Americans across the country who spoke out for the first time about their incarceration during World War II. Recognizing the historic nature of these hearings, Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR, then known as the National Coalition for Redress/ Reparations) and Visual Communications (VC) collaborated to videotape the Los Angeles hearings. The impact of the CWRIC hearings in Los Angeles will be the subject of this program. Clips from the hearings will be screened and panel discussions will be convened with testifiers and grassroots organizers, who will discuss the impact of the hearings on the community and on the redress campaign as well as their ongoing relevance today. People who testified, attended the hearings, or helped with filming are invited to share their recollections during the audience Q&A and comment period at the end. All attendees are invited to a reception with light refreshments following the program.

Highlights of the CWRIC testimonies are available on DVD and will be available for purchase at the event. Complete documentation of all the Los Angeles testimonies is also available in a 13-disc DVD set, which may be pre-ordered at the event or using the online order form.

Presented in partnership with Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress and Visual Communications.

The program is free but RSVP is highly recommended.

Tickets available here.
