Stories and Silences: Personal Narratives on Executive Order 9066
Past Event

Stories and Silences features live readings of personal narratives from those who experienced Executive Order 9066, Japanese American concentration camps, and their aftermath. The readings, some presented by descendants of internees, are interspersed with periods of silence, text, and images that contextualize the history and legacy of the internment camps.


BIMA is following the COVID-19 recommendations and guidance from Kitsap Public Health District, Washington State Department of Health, and the CDC, and will continue to update health and safety policies as needed. At this time, masks and proof of vaccination is not required–but we welcome you to wear a mask if you choose.

We recommend visiting our website prior to this event for the most up-to-date policies.
