Mukai marks 80th anniversary of incarceration order with authors of new graphic novel, “We Hereby Refuse”

Driven by wartime fear, bigotry, and paranoia, Executive Order 9066, a policy with lasting consequences issued 80 years ago this February, authorized the removal and detention of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast. Saturday, February 19, at 4 p.m., Mukai Farm & Garden will commemorate the 80th anniversary with an online discussion with Frank Abe and Tamiko Nimura, authors of the new graphic novel, "We Hereby Refuse: Japanese American Resistance to Wartime Incarceration.”
