Sam Mihara and Azam Nizamuddin of the Muslim Bar Association join in conversation for an intimate conversation. From San Francisco, Mihara and his family were incarcerated in Wyoming as part of the forced removal of Japanese Americans during WWII. Azam Nizamuddin is currently working to prevent civil rights violations that are threatening Muslims in America today. Mihara and Nizamuddin will discuss the experiences of children, families and individuals subjected to persecution and exclusion on the basis of race, religion and background. They will also explore the role artists who documented the incarceration of Japanese Americans as well as the media play in creating dangerous stereotypes that perpetrate fear both then and today.
