On May 29, 6 p.m. host Rose Aguilar will speak to Nancy Ukai and Judy Shintani about how they’re using art to explore the ramifications of Japanese American incarceration during WWII. Ukai’s “50 objects, 50 stories” unearths the stories of internees. Shintani art fosters internee memories and hidden stories about the time. More details here.
On June 6, 6 p.m. we’ll talk about how organizers, lawyers and activists are building solidarity across communities to protect civil rights and liberties in the face of Islamophobia, anti-immigrant rhetoric and racial discrimination. Aguilar will be in conversation with attorney Don Tamaki, law professor Bill Ong Hing, and the Arab Resource and Organizing Center. More details here.
HEAR is made possible by funding from the California State Library's California Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
