From Spanish colonial missions to WWII concentration camps to present day ICE run “family detention centers,” the history of the U.S. is marked by the mass incarceration due to racism and xenophobia that has affected Japanese and Latin Americans. In 1942, Crystal City detention facility opened in south Texas as one of the many sites around the U.S. used to incarcerate those of Japanese ancestry during WWII. Unique to Crystal City, many of these internees had been deported from Latin America to the U.S. This panel of artists and experts will speak not only to these connected histories of violence, but also to the interwoven stories of resistance and community power that were built out of these times of pressure. Moderated by Clement Hanami, JANM’s VP of Exhibitions and Art Director, panelists include Jesus Barraza, co-founder of Dignidad Rebelde, Shizu Saldamondo, visual artist, and Kazumu Naganuma, Japanese Peruvian survivor of Crystal City.

This program is presented in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art as part Asian Pacific Islander Latinx Festival. Find the rest of the series programming at: molaa.org/events/2021/5/20/apilxfest
