LOS ANGELES — It’s been a little over two weeks since the 48th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage and the 2017 Manzanar At Dusk program, held on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

As we noted previously, more than 2,000 people attended the Pilgrimage and approximately 550 participating in the Manzanar At Dusk program, shattering the previous attendance record of 360.

Our professional photo essay from the Pilgrimage from Mark Kirchner and Geri Ferguson is forthcoming. We have posted some amateur photographs from the events. Video from the events is also forthcoming.

This year’s Pilgrimage and Manzanar At Dusk programs drew unprecedented media coverage, including reporters from print, radio, television and various web sites. In addition, a record number of documentary filmmakers were present.

The following is the media coverage from that weekend.
