Placeholder Image

The Carnegie Arts Center presents a talk by the Speakers Bureau of the Livingston chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League at 2 p.m. Nov. 12.

The discussion, “A Lesson in American History: the Japanese American Experience,” will explore the unique experiences of Japanese Americans during World War II.

During World War II, the U.S. government removed 120,000 individuals of Japanese ancestry from their homes on the West Coast and confined them in internment camps.  Members of the speakers bureau will present their personal and families’ experiences from this time period.

The lecture is free and will be at the Carnegie at 244 N. Broadway.
