In this virtual program, Susan H. Kamei will discuss her new book, When Can We Go Back to America?: Voices of Japanese American Incarceration during WWII, and the lessons that she hopes readers of all ages will take from it. She will be joined in conversation by William A. Darity Jr. , Samuel DuBois Cook Distinguished Professor of Public Policy at Duke, and A. Kirsten Mullen, writer, folklorist, museum consultant, and lecturer.

About the book:

In what Secretary Norman Y. Mineta describes as a “landmark book,” he and others who lived through the harrowing experience of America’s concentration camps tell the story of their incarceration and the long-term impact of this dark period in American history. For the first time, why and how these tragic events took place are interwoven with more than 130 individual voices of those who were unconstitutionally incarcerated, many of them children and young adults. Now more than ever, their words will resonate with readers who are confronting questions about racial identity, immigration, and citizenship, and what it means to be an American.

When Can We Go Back to America?: Voices of Japanese American Incarceration during WWII will be available in the JANM Store starting September 7th.

This program is presented in partnership with the Japanese American Citizens League.
