“Within the Silence” by Ken Mochizuki: A Living Voices Performance on the Japanese Exclusion
In 1942 Roosevelt’s Executive order 9066 imprisoned thousands of loyal American families. These innocent citizens struggled to maintain their families, their pride, and their sense of identity while incarcerated by their own country’s government. Witness this silent chapter of our history through Living Voices, a unique presentation that combines dynamic solo performances with archival film and sound, turning history into a moving and personal journey. Share this intimate story of one Japanese American family’s fight to sustain faith in the country they love.
