Podcast: Historic Wintersburg's Mary Adams Urashima

Chapters is a five-part Creative + Cultural Podcast series dedicated to "stories surrounding the exclusion, forced removal, and internment of Japanese-Americans".   Among those interviewed is historian and author of Historic Wintersburg in Huntington Beach, Mary Adams Urashima.

(22:45 minutes)

Historic Wintersburg was designated one of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in 2014 and one of America's National Treasures in 2015. The Furuta farm and Wintersburg Japanese Mission mark more than a century of Japanese American history and represent pioneer arrival and settlement of the American West, Orange County's agricultural history, pioneer achievement, and the struggle for civil liberties.
The Placemaking Roadshow is a traveling program made possible with support from Chapman University, The California Civil Liberties Public Education Program, a state-funded grant project of the California State Library and from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
