How to Avoid Repeating History: Understand It.

There are aspects of America’s history that haven’t always made it into the history books. In this episode, Toby Asai Loftus returns, this time to share the real history of Japanese-American Incarceration during World War II. His mother, Mitzi Asai Loftus, was in the 4th grade when her family was removed. Toby has grown up hearing the family stories and has often given talks with his mother to children and adults to share the real-life experiences and ripple effects of the racism that took their lives apart. This is a historical account that remains family-friendly, but (hopefully) will spark conversation as well as deeper compassion for those experiencing racism.
