Researchers Life Speaker Series

Evelyn Shimazu Yee, Associate Professor and Librarian

In the first lecture of this series, learn about the role of the Quakers and how they lived out their faith, and “loved their neighbors” along with surrounding communities and early APU missionary training grounds, fighting for justice for the Japanese Internment of World War II.

The Quakers stood side by side with American citizens of Japanese Ancestry when 110,000 innocent Nisei (many Christians), their children and approximately 10,000 of their legal resident parents were forced at gunpoint out of their homes, schools, and businesses into hidden concentration camps, enduring personal losses, much of which were never recovered.
