Shared Saturday Conference Events with the Arkansas Library Association
Title: Relocation, Arkansas
Description: The execution of Executive Order 9066 in 1943 began what is arguably the greatest single violation of civil rights of any group of Americans, the forced removal and incarceration of every person of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast. That two of the prison camps were located in Arkansas is a surprise to many Americans, who never knew that over 16,000 Californians had been sent to the Deep South. Relocation, Arkansas, a documentary directed by native Arkansan, Vivienne Schiffer, explores the aftermath of the incarceration experience on the generation that was born after the camps closed, the surprising story of those Japanese American families who remained in Arkansas after the war years, and the amazing power of the creative spirit of those who were in the Arkansas camps. A panel discussion with the filmmaker and others involved with making the film follows.
