RIVERSIDE – Join George Takei for a Day of Remembrance virtual event and live discussion at the Glen Avon Regional Library in Riverside Friday, Feb. 19. Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. George Takei, and many others who were incarcerated, are featured in “And Then They Came for Us,” an award-winning documentary directed by the Peabody Award-winning team of Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider. “And Then They Came for Us” brings history into the present through the retelling of this story, following Japanese American activists and featuring newly rediscovered photographs by Dorothea Lange.
