Join our SAJCC Editor Carolyn Classen, whose father Francis Sueo Sugiyama was forced to relocate from Los Angeles to Chicago in the spring of 1942. He had been expelled as a student at USC Dental School (due to his race), then luckily got a “voluntary pass” and fled by train, without his possessions, which were sent to him later in Chicago.
Professor Esaki’s grandparents met in the internment camps, and Brandon Shimoda’s grandfather was also interned in a Dept. of Justice prison camp. Listen to their stories and ongoing research on this topic, along with Professor Williams’ Buddhism research. He will also be lecturing at 4 p.m. that same day at the UA (see other post below and our Calendar).
