Humanities Washington:

Let It Not Happen Again- Lessons of the Japanese-American Exclusion

Clarence Moriwaki explores the fear, racism, and failure of political leadership that led to these unconstitutional actions during World War II, and why we must not let it happen again.

What led to the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans, and how can we prevent similar tragedies?

In March of 1942, 227 Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from their homes on Bainbridge Island by the US Army. Starting with this small community, a national strategy began, with more than 120,000 Japanese American men, women, and children forcibly removed and incarcerated during World War II.
Clarence Moriwaki provides a human, historical account of this national tragedy, to ask the question: Are there parallels to what's happening in America now? Moriwaki uses historical images and current propaganda, to explore the fear, racism, and failure of political leadership that led to these unconstitutional actions during World War II, and why we must not let it happen again.

Moriwaki is the president of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community and a founder and former president of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial Association.
