The OLLI Distinguished Speakers Series presents Amherst College Professor Franklin Odo on Japanese Americans in World War II. Three months after Pearl Harbor was bombed and the U.S. entered WWII, the nation began incarcerating 120,000 Americans of Japanese descent, some of whom were not released until early 1946. This episode in American history is one example of our nation's ongoing and complex history of reconciling national security needs with commitment to the rights of individuals and groups.
