In conjunction with the opening of three exhibitions celebrating the vast and rich culture of Japan,the Crocker will present 7.5 hours of continuous programming commemorating the 75th anniversary of the signing of the United States’ Executive Order 9066 during World War II, requiring the imprisonment of all Americans of Japanese ancestry. The day will begin with a mass meditation, followed by remarks by civic and community leaders, and throughout the day there will be a reading of the names of local men, women,and children imprisoned in the camps. To represent the resilience of Japanese Americans who endured this injustice, there will be art demonstrations, exhibition tours, performances,and the sharing of stories by those who personally experienced the camps as children. The day will close with a screening of Grave of the Fireflies directed by Isao Takahata. Join us for all or part of this reflective day.
