The Three Farewells to Manzanar

About the Event

Featuring: Sue Embrey and the Manzanar Committee

A report by National Park Service archaeologist Jeff Burton called “The Three Farewells to Manzanar” explains the history of Manzanar through the theme of eviction. Native Americans were first evicted from their land by the U.S. military and white settlers. Then the settlers were evicted by the City of Los Angeles, Department of Water and Power. In 1942, Japanese Americans were evicted from their homes and placed in Manzanar. Sue Embrey of the Manzanar Committee and former editor of the Manzanar Free Press will give a slide presentation and talk about Manzanar’s past, present, and future. Free. Reservations required. Limited seating available.
