From Days of Infamy to Days of Remembrance: A Japanese American Journey commemorates the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which authorized the unlawful removal and incarceration of 120,000 women, men, and children of Japanese ancestry during WWII. The Japanese American Citizens League Players reenact stories of immigration, internment, and the post-war recovery of three generations of Japanese Americans. Tributes to local Japanese Americans of “the Greatest Generation,” who endured racial discrimination, survived the Great Depression and WWII internment camps, and distinguished themselves as Americans and New Mexicans are included in the program.
