Between 1942 and 1945, the U.S. government wrongfully imprisoned tens of thousands of Japanese American citizens and profited from their labor, coercing them into harvesting crops, digging irrigation ditches, paving roads, and building barracks for little to no compensation – all in the name of national security.

Stephanie D. Hinnershitz, author of Japanese American Incarceration: The Camps and Coerced Labor during World War II, will discuss how the U.S. government used incarceration to address labor demands during World War II and how Japanese Americans responded to the stripping of their rights.
