Japanese Americans returning from World War II incarceration camps rebuilt their community in L.A.’s Crenshaw area. In this episode, we walk through Little Tokyo, explore the archives at the Japanese American National Museum, share a meal at historic Tak’s Cafe, shoot hoops at Dorsey High and consider how the neighborhood’s diverse history intersects with community-building efforts today. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with those featured in the episode including Kristen Hayashi (JANM), Nobuko Miyamoto, and Nick Nagatani, moderated by Mikey Hirano Culrass (Rafu Shimpo).

Presented by KCET, "Lost LA" explores the past through the region's archives, where photos, documents, and other rare artifacts unlock the untold history behind the fantasy of Southern California. Hosted by writer and public historian Nathan Masters of the USC Libraries, each episode of "Lost LA" brings the primary sources of history to the screen in surprising new ways. Much of L.A.'s past is lost to history, but through the region's archives, we can uncover the inspiring dreams and bitter realities that built the modern-day metropolis.
