Sakura-mento: Japanese-Americans in the River City

Sakura-mento: Japanese-Americans in the River City

Sunday, August 19, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Join us at the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery:

By 1910, Sacramento had become the 4th-most Japanese-populated city in California and had a thriving Japantown. That all changed with World War II. Hear the amazing story of Japanese-American immigrants’ battle to overcome discrimination. We’ll tell you about the farmers, the merchants, and the soldiers from the 100th Battalion and 442nd Infantry Regiment, who fought to free Europe while their relatives were in camps back home. The tour is free. The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818.
