Join us for a FREE screening of the new documentary, “A Bitter Legacy” directed by Claudia Katayanagi. A special Q&A session with the director will follow the screening.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Japanese American internment camps. While the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II is now widely known, little has been exposed about the Citizen Isolation Centers – secret prisons for “troublemakers” who resisted and questioned authority. A Bitter Legacy examines those prisons – now considered to be precursors to Guantanamo Bay – and parallels to issues of racism and immigration restriction today.
