“Memories of Heart Mountain: The Imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II” by Sam Mihara @ Whitney Presentation Hall/Sheridan College
Sep 23 @ 6:30 pm

SHERIDAN—Sheridan College is having a presentation called “Memories of Heart Mountain: The Imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II” by Sam Mihara, a former prisoner at the Heart Mountain, Wyoming, and Pomona, California internment camps during World War II. During World War II, the U.S. government forced 9-year-old Sam Mihara and his entire family to move from their home in San Francisco to an internment camp in Wyoming. Seventy years have passed since the incarceration and Sam is one of the few survivors willing to speak about this experience. In his moving presentation, he talks about his years in the Heart Mountain and Pomona internment camps, providing a first-hand account of this great civil rights injustice that was experienced by more than 120,000 Japanese Americans. Sam Mihara is a rocket scientist who worked for Boeing and later started his own high-tech consulting firm. He was incarcerated at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center during World War II, and he now travels around the country speaking about that experience. The presentation will be on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Whitney Presentation Hall. For more information, contact Misty Bateman at mbateman@sheridan.edu
