We Hereby Refuse is a new graphic novel from authors Frank Abe and Tamiko Nimura, with illustrations by Ross Ishikawa.
Japanese Americans complied when evicted from their homes in World War II -- but many refused to submit to imprisonment in American concentration camps without a fight. Based upon painstaking research, We Hereby Refuse presents an original vision of America’s past with disturbing links to the American present.
Join Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle Public Library Foundation, and The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience on June 14 for an event featuring the book's authors and illustrator in conversation with Densho's Tom Ikeda.
