In Conversation with Kenji Ima: Japanese Internment Camp Survivor
Saturday, December 3, 2022 - 4:30 PM 7:00 PM

Kenji Ima was born in Seattle, Washington in 1937. When he was four years old, he and his family were sent to a prison camp in Idaho for three years. During WWII, 120,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated, two thirds were American citizens. From his personal story to its wider significance, Kenji continues to reflect on those years and the legacy of the camps. How can lessons from the past help us take better care of all Americans today?

Please join Kenji and his daughter Kim in conversation about Kenji's childhood in camp, his life after the war, and how they connect to current events impacting us all.
