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

In 1942, Sam Mihara and his family were forcibly removed from their home in San Francisco and sent to the Heart Mountain Internment Camp in northern Wyoming. Sam, who was a child at the time, was born in the United States. His family's only crime was their Japanese heritage. During their three years at Heart Mountain, Sam's entire family lived in a single room measuring 20 by 20 feet.

Join us as Sam tells his family's story and shares his dedication to preventing civil rights violations like these from ever happening again.
