In World War II thousands of Japanese Americans were incarcerated in Arkansas…because they didn't look American.
In World War II more than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced to leave their homes and relocate to military camps dotted across the western United States. Time of Fear tells the story of the 16,000 men, women, and children who were sent to two relocation camps in southeast Arkansas - one of the poorest and most racially segregated places in America. It also explores the reactions of the native Arkansans who watched in bewilderment as their tiny towns were overwhelmed by the influx of outsiders. Using rare home movies of the camp and exclusive interviews, Time of Fear tells a powerful tale of racism and resilience that still resonates today.
Time of Fear
Sioux Falls Free Thinkers endorse Time of Fear for showing that most of these people were American citizens. They were imprisoned for one reason, they were Japanese. This was pure RACISM.
