Visit to the Japanese American National Museum

There are powerful exhibits currently on display at the JANM that tell the history of Japanese-American wartime incarceration and invite reflection for people of faith on justice, identity, and history. The visit will include a special tour of Ireicho – a book that Karen Kano has worked on that contains the first comprehensive listing of over 125,000 people of Japanese ancestry who were incarcerated during World War II. This visit will take place on Thursday, September 21st.  Knox’s tour reservation is right at 11:00 a.m., and admission is free. There will also be a chance for those interested to gather after the visit and discuss what we’ve seen over lunch in Little Tokyo. The museum is right near the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station. Please RSVP here. There will be an opportunity to carpool with others from the Knox campus. For more on the JANM, click here.
