They Called Us Enemy: An Intergenerational Conversation on Racial Injustice
1 hour

Brought to you by

Japanese American National Museum

Join us for this intergenerational conversation on racial injustice and reconciliation surrounding George Takei’s graphic memoir, They Called Us Enemy, which tells the story of Takei’s imprisonment in a WWII Japanese American concentration camp. June Berk, a former WWII incarceree and Japanese American National Museum 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.

Program was a collaboration between the Japanese American National Museum, Koreatown Youth and Community Center Koreatown Storytelling Program, and the “Book to Action” program of the California Library Association
