Dorothea Lange’s photos of the wartime uprooting and detention of Japanese Americans are featured in “And Then They Came for Us.”
SACRAMENTO — Northern California Time of Remembrance (Florin, Lodi, Placer County and Sacramento JACL chapters) present “And Then They Came for Us” on Saturday, Feb. 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the California Museum, 1020 O St. in Sacramento.
The documentary brings history into the present, retelling the difficult story of the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II, and follows Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban.
Knowing history is the first step to ensuring that it is not repeated. “And Then They Came for Us” is a cautionary tale for these challenging times when basic rights are being threatened.
