February 17: Resistance at Tule Lake (2016)
Discussant: Konrad Aderer (Director)

Over 110,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated in ten camps from 1942 to 1945, in the largest mass imprisonment of citizens in U.S. history. Resistance at Tule Lake tells the long-suppressed story of the “No-No’s” – 12,000 incarcerees who defied the government by refusing to swear unconditional loyalty to the U.S. Although refusal was an act of protest and family survival, the government branded "No-No's" as “disloyals” and forced them to relocate to the newly militarized Tule Lake Segregation Center. 78 minutes.

This film is being screened in collaboration with the Henry Madden Library’s 9066 Japanese American Voices from the Inside collaborative exhibition and series of events which examine the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans in “exclusion areas” authorized by Executive Order 9066 which was signed on February 19, 1942, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This action had deep and profound consequences for all the families affected and the communities they left for decades—reverberations that are still felt today. The exhibition explores this complex and searing episode in our history. For more information regarding exhibition highlights and events: https://library.fresnostate.edu/node/158
