Event Series Dates
Join us for this intergenerational conversation on racial injustice and reconciliation highlighted in George Takei’s graphic memoir, They Called Us Enemy. The book recounts the memories of Takei’s imprisonment in a WWII Japanese American concentration camp. June Berk, former WWII prisoner, and JANM volunteer, will be interviewed by Abbi-Hope Jihye Park and Abigail Eun, two Los Angeles-area high school students from the Koreatown Youth and Community Center’s Koreatown Storytelling Program. They will discuss the novel, the many histories that it connects, and its lessons for our futures.
This event is free and will be live-streamed and archived on the Los Angeles Public Library YouTube channel.
