Join us at the SCT for opening night of 'The Journal of Ben Uchida' on Friday, Feb 9th @ 7pm. "I was born here. I’m from here. I’m American.” Witness the story of 12-year-old Ben Uchida, a Japanese-American boy whose life is changed forever following the World War II attack on Pearl Harbor. When the U.S. government forces Japanese-American citizens into internment camps, Ben and his family must face difficult truths about the idea of home. One young person’s struggle to understand a society allowing mass discrimination against its citizens poses questions as urgent today as they were in the past.
