    Join San Jose’s Mexican and Japanese American communities at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose for a multicultural panel on civil liberties. 

     
    The theme "I Never Saw My Father Again" is based on two stories, one from a Japanese American friend of mine whose father was taken away to a special Justice Department internment camp during World War II (separate from the larger prison camps the rest of my friend’s family got sent to). His father died while imprisoned, far away from this family. Francisco’s oral history research also uncovered a story told by a Mexican American, who as a young boy lost his father when he was picked up in a round up during the ”repatriation” and mass deportations of the 1930s, never to return.
    In the panel, Dr. Francisco Balderrama of California State University, Los Angeles and Ammad Rafiqi of CAIR will be discussing stories and shared experiences about exclusionary actions both have faced in recent and local history. Following the panel with be a light reception. 
    Please join the conversation in unifying two cultures for civil liberties. 
    This event is FREE to the public, but RSVP is required.
