I drove right by this fire on my way home from Mammoth yesterday just a couple miles south of Manzanar and a few miles north of Lone Pine on US 395. All the traffic headed northbound was stopped because of this fire, but I was headed southbound which was unaffected. #fire #US395 #Manzanar #LonePine #CA #EasternSierras #InyoCounty #395 #brushfire #🔥

1 week away from the Manzanar Pilgrimage with @cairlosangeles I have the chance to reflect on the stories of the "othered" the "camped". refugee, incarceration, concentration, death. Join me on 4/26 to hear #vietthanhnguyen discuss #thedisplaced and join me on 4/28 as we take a bus to the #manzanar WW2 JA incarceration site for the @manzanarcommittee #manzanarpilgrimage2018

From a few weeks back at a stop in McGehee, Arkansas. It’s worth a visit to learn about the Japanese-American confinement sites managed by @usinterior. Many may have heard about #Manzanar. There were similar internment camps across the West and even in the Arkansas Delta.

The inscription reads "I REI TO" with the litteral translation "soul consoling tower" built with a 15¢ donation from every family in this 10,000+ internment camp. I've been many times pver the past decades, but today it brought me to tears. Have we learned so little? #Manzanar

Daha çok Doğa Fotoğraflarıyla tanıdığımız  Ansel Adams “Manzanar” çalışmasıyla savaş zamanın öfkesini, önyargısını ve açık ırkçılığını fotoğraflamış. 2. Dünya Savaşı sırasında Kaliforniya Manzanar'da  Amerikan Vatandaşı Japonlar için bir toplama kampı kurulur. Amerikan tarihinde belirleyici  ve rahatsız edici bir dönemdir.  Bu kampı fotoğraflarıyla belgeleyen Ansel Adams’ın “Manzanar” çalışması adaletsizliğe ve ırkıcılığa karşı koyma, çeşitliliği kucaklama ve toplumu koruma misyonuna hizmet eder. #ifsak #ifsakfotograf #anseladams #manzanar

Here’s another reflection piece from one of the students who participated in our pilot project, “Keeping Japanese American Incarceration Stories Alive,” a two-day, intensive, place-based learning experience at the #Manzanar National Historic Site (@ManzanarNPS) last month. . Like her peers who went on the trip, Erica Wei (@eri_way) of the UCSD Nikkei Student Union (@UCSDNSU) was deeply affected by her experiences at Manzanar, and she shared her thoughts with us. .

Did you know that the annual #Manzanar Pilgrimage is so much more than the daytime program that so many people attend each year? . Yes, there is a lot more that happens that same evening at the Manzanar At Dusk program, now in its 21st year! . At Manzanar At Dusk, participants have an opportunity to hear stories of incarceration behind the barbed wire of American concentration camps, like Manzanar, Tule Lake, Minidoka, and the other camps or confinement sites. They also have a chance to make connections between this important history and their own present-day experiences with discussion and sharing of stories. .

I really can't wait to go back next year to Manzanar to see what else we can do to help in its preservation. The trips there through csusb has brought in what it actually means to serve a community. . . . . . . #agameoftones #ig_masterpiece #ig_exquisit #ig_shotz #global_shotz #superhubs #main_vision #pixel_ig #photographyislifee #photographer #igers #photooftheday #instagood #instagoodmyphoto #justgoshoot #icatching #shotzdelight #ig_myshot #huntgram #collectivelycreate #photographysouls #visualsgang #marvelshots #ig_podium #photochallenge

We make a point of taking our USF students to Manzanar Japanese internment to help include some social context alongside the geology on our trips. Manzanar was open from 1942-1945 and housed 10,046 people, many of whom were American citizens and all of whom were from the west coast. It’s a somber but important stop on all of our eastern California field trips. The Sierra Nevada give the camp its dramatic backdrop. #manzanar #usfbulls #guestgrammer @lis.gallant

"[The shadow] offers solidarity across difference... The great Black intellectual W.E.B. Du Bois used a similar image in a 1924 essay, predicting the rise of an Afro-Asian movement against colonialism and white supremacy, which he called 'the shadow of shadows'" . The video, My Shadow Is A Word Writing Itself Across Time, by visual artist Gazelle Samizay (@gsamizay) and poet Sahar Muradi (@muradi.sahar) weaves together images and words connecting the Paiute, Shoshone, Japanese American incarceration, US-Afghan relations, Islamophobia and the dark truths haunting the nation, the land and the water flowing through Owens Valley and Manzanar. The video exhibit opens this evening, 6-9pm at LACDA (LA Center for Digital Art) -- 104 E 4th St -- one block north of Indian Alley at the corner of Winston and Werdin. Looking forward to viewing this intersectional work tonight at a space that features "forms of art and technology that constitute our moment in culture." Please message/comment if you'd like to meet in Indian Alley and then view the video exhibit! . #manzanar #japaneseamerican #concentrationcamp #executiveorder9066 #immigrant #afghanistan #afghanamerican #guantanamo #owensvalley #paiute #shoshone #waterwars #losangeles #videoart #contemporaryart #fineart #afghanartist #memory #neveragain #checkpoint #watchtower #film #womenfilmmakers #womenartists #art #indianalley

Manzanar Cemetery honors the memory of more than 135 individuals who were held captive in one of ten American concentration camps: Over 110,000 Japanese Americans were unjustly incarcerated during World War II from December 1942 to 1945. In March 1942, confidential census protections were lifted under the Second War Powers Act allowing law enforcement agencies to access names and addresses of those who were arrested. After having their assets seized including homes and business, internees lived in squalor in the California desert performing menial labor. Many including infants and the elderly did not survive the harsh conditions. In 1988 President Reagan signed a formal apology and issued $20,000 in reparations for property seized during the roundups. The US government still refuses to acknowledge the sites as “concentration camps” despite decades of criticism. #manzanar #americanconcentrationcamp #necropolitics #deathconsciousness . .

I don’t consider myself super japanesey... I’ve never been to Japan, the only Japanese I can speak is from what I can remember from my high school language class, I don’t like sushi, or actually Japanese food for that matter, and I even wear my shoes inside my house! Lol...but visiting Manzanar today was a reminder of my roots and the injustice many Japanese-Americans faced during WWII when they were denied their freedom and forced into internment camps. My Grandma Yo was interned at Minidoka in Idaho and my Grandma Taye at Topaz in Utah, while both my grandpas fought for freedom as part of the 442. History is filled with good guys, and bad guys... people who do the right thing, and people who make mistakes. But what is important is what we make of our history. #manzanar #442goforbroke #SFTahoeAnniversary

A moving visit to Manzanar, one of ten internment camps for Japanese Americans during WWII #neverforget #manzanar #california

Manzanar, California. We visited and amongst the cold internment buildings and monuments was a bit of spring as the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. It was good to visit in the spring. It was a place of remembrance, a place to not to ever repeat. Yet a place with a touch of beauty and hope for the future. I wonder will there be cherries? #manzanar #internment #spring #cherryblossom #easternsierra #395north #inyocounty #inyonationalforest #lonepine

Stopped by Mammoth to check out the mountain and town. Then drove to Manzanar. History kind of glosses over the fact we rounded up 120,000 American citizens from Wa, Or, and Ca only because they had Japanese ancestors. Sent them to camps for 2+ years.

Along CA 395 between Lone Pine and Independence at the foot of the Sierra Nevada... I’ve been wanting to stop here since I first drove by in the early 90’s and finally got a chance on our spring break trip last week. In 1942, the US govt ordered more than 110,000 men, women and children to leave their homes and detained them in remote, military style camps. Manzanar War Relocation Center was the first of ten camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were incarcerated during WW II and held just over 10,000 people. The cemetery site is marked by a monument which was built by incarceree stonemason Ryozo Kado in 1943. The inscription in Japanese on the front of the monument reads “Soul Consoling Tower”. 146 incarcerees died at Manzanar and fifteen were buried there. Only five graves remain as most were later reburied elsewhere by their families. The front entrance sentry post and internal police post were also built by Ryozo Kado in 1942. #manzanarnationalhistoricsite #nationalparkservice #ca395 #sierranevada #nationalhistoricsite #nps #manzanar #ushistory #optoutside #landscape #vacation

Saturday we went to Manzanar National Historic Site, a Japanese internment camp during WWII. Just like when we visit libraries and museums we were the last to leave. I, of course, had to photograph the remains of every garden and park. Imagine being taken from your home, your possessions, your friends, your family momentos, your community, loosing your liberty and your rights, being sent out to a barren desert with howling winds to live in a tar paper shack. These gardens were their solace. Greg played a song at the memorial before they came and locked the gates and then we headed on down the road, our solace - moving so freely. #vanlife #fordtransitvan #transitvan #manzanar #interentcamp #nationalpark #findyourpark #accordion #mountains #japaneseinternmentcamp #california #travel #manzanarnationalhistoricsite #memorial

Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of ten camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were incarcerated during World War II. Manzanar is an eye opening place that everyone should visit. Better yet go to the manzanar pilgrimage this April 28th to hear first hand stories of what life was like here. And what it was like after they went back to their homes, or what was left of them. #manzanar
