Day of Remembrance with author Duncan Ryuken Williams

February 22 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
Day of Remembrance:
Duncan Ryuken Williams discusses his book, American Sutra: A Story of Faith and Freedom in the Second World War. Duncan Ryūken Williams reveals the little-known story of how, in the darkest hours of World War II when Japanese Americans were stripped of their homes and imprisoned in camps, a community of Buddhists launched one of the most inspiring defenses of religious freedom in our nation’s history, insisting that they could be both Buddhist and American.

Sponsored by Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Eastwind Books of Berkeley, and Berkeley JACL.

OACC’s 2020 Day of Remembrance programs are supported in part by the CA State Library Civil Liberties grant.
