Location: Ohio Union, Rosa Ailabouni Room

As a part of APIDA Heritage Month, join Intercultural Specialist Melissa Beard Jacob for a presentation on the history of forced family separations.

The forced separation of families is not a new concept in the United States and it has been happening for centuries. This presentation will discuss the history of family separation and child removal through slavery, the Native American boarding school system, Japanese Internment Camps and the current detainment of immigrants occurring along the U.S./Mexico border.
