Did you know that there's more to the Manzanar Pilgrimage, beyond the daytime program at the #Manzanar National Historic Site (@manzanarnps)?
.
For 20 years now, the Manzanar Committee has sponsored an interactive program on the same evening as the Pilgrimage where participants can interact, sharing what they've learned, thought and felt that day with a diverse group with the hope of applying those lessons to what's happening in our communities and our society today.
.
Participants can also hear stories from Japanese Americans who were unjustly incarcerated during World War II.
.
Along with our student organizers, we hope you'll join us for the 2017 Manzanar At Dusk program, which you can read more about in "Connecting The Past With The Present To Be The Focus of 2017 Manzanar At Dusk" at:
