Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs by Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. Screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Co-director, Ken Schneider, SSF Mayor Pro Tempore, Karyl Matsumoto, SSF Asian American Alliance Board Member, Hilda Barradas, and Steve Okamoto of TACMC.
