APM Reports: Order 9066

Order 9066 LogoKSPB will air the three-part series Order 9066 from American Public Media starting Monday, July 23. Order 9066 was produced as a collaboration by APM Reports with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

Through vivid, first-person accounts of those who lived through it, Order 9066 chronicles the history of the incarceration of some 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry who were forced from their homes on the West Coast and sent to one of ten “relocation” camps during World War II.

Episodes will air Mondays from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. with an encore on Saturdays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Click here for more information about the program and the individual episodes.
