Japanese Americans in WWII

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 authorizing the creation of military areas along the west coast from which “any and all persons may be excluded” at the discretion of the Secretary of War. This order resulted in the mass deportation and incarceration of tens of thousands of Japanese-American citizens and residents of Japanese descent on the premise that they constituted a security risk vis-a-vis the war with Japan. These families were forced to leave their homes and nearly all of their belongings and were placed in remote military-guarded camps for the next two and a half years.

California State University, Dominguez Hills plans to mark this dark point in U.S. history with a number of activities and events.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
