Solano Community College to screen documentary “And Then They Came for Us” – The Reporter

Solano Community College will celebrate the ratification of the United States Constitution, which established governmental and fundamental laws and guaranteed basic rights for American citizens, by screening the documentary “And Then They Came For Us” from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 17 in the SCC theatre, 4000 Suisun Valley Road in Fairfield.

Featuring George Takei, “And Then They Came For Us” delves into President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066 and the impact of unconstitutionally incarcerating Japanese Americans — many of whom were American citizens — during WWII.

As the United States government misled its citizens about the threat of espionage, the film documents the damage to 120,000 people through photos taken by Dorthea Lange and other photographers during the 1940s.
