They Called Us Enemy: An Intergenerational Conversation on Racial Justice


April 15, 2021 • 4:00 pm PDT

Join the Japanese American National Museum for an intergenerational conversation on racial injustice and reconciliation highlighted in George Takei’s graphic memoir, They Called Us Enemy. The book recounts the memories of Takei’s imprisonment in a WWII Japanese American concentration camp. June Berk, former WWII incarceree and JANM 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.
