Held a few hours after the traditional afternoon Manzanar Pilgrimage program, Manzanar At Dusk is an interactive, intergenerational program where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to share their stories about what they learned and experienced earlier in the day at the Manzanar Pilgrimage. More important, participants have the opportunity to learn from those who were incarcerated in one of the ten American concentration camps, or other confinement sites, during World War II.
