Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Feb 21, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 8! February 19, 2022 marked 80 years since the signing of Executive Order 9066 that wrongly imprisoned over 120,000 Japanese Americans during WWII. Of the ten concentration camps that the U.S. government created (and referred to as relocation centers), Tule Lake was the most brutal. For our main segment, we talk about the history of the Tule Lake Segregation Center. We also take time to remember Christina Yuna Lee, another Asian American woman who was murdered in New York. We close out the episode with a segment of What Are You Reading? We talk about Journey of Heroes by Stacey Hayashi and illustrated by Damon Wong as well as They Called Us Enemy written by George Takei, Justin Eisinger, and Steven Scott and illustrated by Harmony Becker. Both are comic books that we highly recommend. For previous episodes and information, please visit our site at or for social media. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, email us at
