Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. Featuring George Takei (of Star Trek) and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times.
Director Abby Ginzberg will join us after the screening for a discussion of the film.
