IDAAS Signature Events, April 2019: Turning and Returning Carceral Landscapes: Buried Histories, Incarceration Allies, Manzanar Pilgrimages
You are invited to our 2018-2019 IDAAS Signature Events happening this April 2019.
Title: Turning and Returning Carceral Landscapes: Buried Histories, Incarceration Allies, Manzanar Pilgrimages
April 27, 2019 marks the 50th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage which will observe two anniversaries: the signing of Executive Order 9066 in 1942 by Franklin D. Roosevelt that unlawfully incarcerated thousands of Japanese American citizens during WW II and the 27th anniversary of the establishment of the Manzanar National Historic Site in 1991 that reclaimed the truth of this shameful episode in American history. We mount a series of five events to interrogate this unjust incarceration, to reflect on its ongoing effects, but, most importantly, to learn from the past and arm ourselves with strategies to combat on-going efforts to incarcerate all peoples now and in the future.
