Sam Mihara: Memories of Heart Mountain - Oct. 8

Sam Mihara, memories of Heart MountainThe LCCC Foundation Gerald and Jessie Chambers Speakers Series presents Sam Mihara: Memories of Heart Mountain at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8, in LCCC's Center for Conferences and Institutes, Union Pacific Centennial Room.

During World War II, the U.S. government forced nine-year-old Sam Mihara and his entire family to move from their home in San Francisco to an internment camp in Wyoming. Seventy years have passed since the incarceration, and Sam is one of the few survivors willing to speak about this experience. In his moving presentation, Memories of Heart Mountain, he talks about his years in the Heart Mountain and Pomona interment camps, providing a first-hand account of this great civil rights injustice that was experienced by more than 120,000 Japanese Americans.

This event is free and open to the public.
