Special Screening: September 23, 2017 @ 2:00PM
A Powerful and timely film. As members of the current administration have raised the specter of a Muslim registry and instituted an immigration ban against people from Muslim majority countries, they have cited the unconstitutional incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II as the precedent. Abby Ginzberg’s documentary And tThen They Came for Us shows the registration and incarceration of Japanese Americans, one of the worest violations of consittutional rights in American history.
Featuring George Takei, who was incarcerated, and others who protested the incarceration, And Then They Came for Us demonstrates the importance of speaking up against any efforst to register or ban Muslims, today. Knowing our history is the first step towards making sure we do not repeat it. And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary tale for these dark times.
