cover of the book "Democratizing the Enemy: Japanese American Internment" by Brian Masaru Hayashi

Brian Masaru Hayashi, professor and chair of the Department of History at Kent State University, is the author of several books about Asian American history, including Democratizing the Enemy: Japanese American Internment and a forthcoming volume on Asian American spies for the Office of Strategic Services during World War II.

In this talk, Hayashi will offer a reevaluation of the wartime incarceration of Japanese Americans and reexamine the decision by the U.S. government to establish internment camps.

This performance is part of the month-long series of events organized in conjunction with the public history exhibit, Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience, in the Richard D. Baron ’64 Art Gallery, from February 17-March 18, 2018. Public viewing hours are from 10am to 5pm, Saturdays, and from 12-5pm, Sundays.
