Speaker: Sam Mihara

Speaker: Sam Mihara
Monday, June 25, 2018 at 7 p.m.
At the Museum

Sam Mihara, a second generation Japanese American, was born in the early 1930s and raised in San Francisco. In 1942, the United States government forced Mihara and his family to relocate, first to a detention camp in Pomona, CA, and then to a remote internment camp called Heart Mountain in Northern Wyoming, where they stayed for three years. Heart Mountain was one of 10 internment camps for people of Japanese ancestry. In total, the camps held 120,000 West Coast residents, a majority of whom were American citizens. Mihara’s family lived in a single room, measuring 20 feet by 20 feet, for their entire imprisonment. He shares his family’s story to help ensure such civil rights violations don’t happen again.
