WHO/WHAT: AARP Hawai‘i will host a free screening of “Voices Behind Barbed Wire: Stories of Hawai‘i,” produced by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i. While the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans on the U.S. mainland has been well-documented, information about the Hawai‘i sites and the experiences of Hawai‘i AJAs continue to emerge. “Voices” explores their stories: their arrest; transfer and interrogation; and their incarceration in camps in New Mexico, Arkansas and Arizona.
WHEN/WHERE: Sunday, May 5, at the Doris Duke Theatre, Honolulu Museum of Art. Reception at 12:30 p.m., followed by the film screening at 1:30 p.m.
