Description
Photograph caption dated February 20, 1983 reads, "To mark the day 41 years ago that President Roosevelt ordered thousands of Japanese-Americans confined in camps in California and other western states, several hundred people joined in a candlelight procession through Little Tokyo last night. They began their "Day of Remembrance" by forming a procession at Nishihonganji Temple, Central Avenue and First Street. The now abandoned temple was the site of the "roundup" of American citizens. The march was sponsored by the National Coalition for Redress and Reparation, the Japanese-American Citizens League and the Terminal Island Group."
