About

Midnight in Broad Daylight

Part of the

Book Club

<club-desc-paragraph>Join Pamela as she guides us through the true story of a Japanese American family that found itself on opposite sides during World War II. An epic tale of family, separation, divided loyalties, love, reconciliation, loss, and redemption, this is a riveting chronicle of U.S.–Japan relations and the Japanese experience in America. Watch as we relive this time in history with the Fukuhara family as they navigate the Japanese experience in 1930 on both US and Japanese soil. Midnight in Broad Daylight is an indelible portrait of a resilient family, a scathing examination of racism and xenophobia, an homage to the tremendous Japanese American contribution to the American war effort, and an invaluable addition to the historical record of this extraordinary time.<club-desc-paragraph>
