The new graphic novel, We Hereby Refuse: Japanese American Resistance to Wartime Incarceration, presents an original vision of America’s past with disturbing links to the American present. Through the characters of Jim Akutsu, Hiroshi Kashiwagi, and Mitsuye Endo, the book weaves together an epic narrative of people who refused to submit to race-based imprisonment in American concentration camps without a fight.

Authors Frank Abe and Tamiko Nimura will read from the graphic novel and describe the process of dramatizing a history that overturns the usual expectations around camp stories, with a special focus on segregation at Tule Lake. Artist Ross Ishikawa will share his use of 3-D modeling to recreate scenes from Japanese American history, and YURI Education Project creators will demonstrate a free online curriculum that accompanies the book.

Co-sponsored by the George and Sakaye Aratani CARE Award, UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center, and the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience
