Video: 2004 Manzanar Pilgrimage

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our YouTube channel, you know that we have been very busy adding videos of all of the annual Manzanar Pilgrimages that we have on videotape. So far, we have videos for the 2005 through 2008 Pilgrimages available.

Now, we’ve just added the 35th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage, April 24, 2004. Two selected clips are highlighted below, but head on over to YouTube to watch all of the video clips.

Manzanar Committee videographer Jonathan Lee shot the documentary video footage. Additional editing by Gann Matsuda.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Mary Kageyama Nomura’s speech- she is such a gracious person to have experienced what she has. I saw a peek of Sue Embrey in the footage- is there a way to see the speech she gave at the pilgrimage- I believe it was her last and one of the best speeches I have heard about what the site stands for.

  2. Sure! As we stated in this blog entry, these were just two of the clips we have available on our YouTube channel from the 2004 Manzanar Pilgrimage. But since Sue didn’t make extensive remarks at the Pilgrimage program, my guess is that you’re referring to her speech at the Grand Opening ceremony for the Manzanar National Historic Site Interpretive Center.

    Assuming that, stay tuned. We’ll have clips from that up on our YouTube channel soon. Your friendly neighborhood blog editor is actually finishing the DVD of that video right now. After that, I’ll start ”chopping up” that video into clips for YouTube.

    So…check back in here sometime tomorrow or the next day for those clips.
