Marii Hasegawa: Gentle Woman of a Dangerous Kind

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

A documentary film about Marii Hasegawa who is honored in the Virginia Women in History exhibit. Hasegawa emigrated from Japan to California in 1919 and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, only to be incarcerated in American concentration camps after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. After WWII, Hasegawa moved to Virginia and quietly began working for peace and human rights over the course of sixty years.
