Voices Radio: A Trip To Manzanar, A Conversation With The L.A Tenants Union

What is Manzanar – the infamous World War 2 camp where 11,000+ Japanese Americans were incarcerated – like these days? Tucked between Sequioa National Park and the Death Valley, Channing Martinez took a trip up to the camp for Memorial Day and shares timely reflections as the holiday passes.

They are fighting a multi-billion dollar real estate company, Ventus Group, headed by USC Alumni Scott Gale.
