Forsaken Fields

Episode 1 of 1

FORSAKEN FIELDS documents what happened to the first and second generation of Japanese- American farmers after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. Emmy award-winning journalist Jan Yanehiro interviews farmers who worked the land in California before the war, as well as those citizens who were incarcerated in relocation centers or forced to move to the interior of the United States by executive order. The program honors the Japanese-Americans who helped build California agriculture and explores the racism and intolerance that gripped the country at that time.
