The Pine and the Cherry: Japanese Americans in Washington Wednesday, March 7, 7 PM

Leading up to WWII, Japanese in Seattle and Eastern Washington thrived and prospered. Then came Executive Order 9066, forcing 120,000 Japanese and their American-citizen offspring to concentration camps, without due process. Mayumi Tsutakawa will reveal her family’s 100-year history against the backdrop of this dramatic American story.
