Valley Edition - July 5, 2019 - Revisiting Fresno Years After Internment, Upward Bound

On this week’s Valley Edition: He hadn’t been to Fresno in 78 years, but this week Walter Imahara visited the site of the Fresno Assembly Center. It’s where he and his family were sent first before going to an internment camp in Arkansas. 

Later, what if you’re a low income, first generation college student? Where do you turn to get the mentoring and support you need? We meet students who are finding assistance with a program at Fresno City College. 

Plus, we replay an interview with Mark Arax on his new book “The Dreamt Land.” We also meet the tour guides behind Boyden Cavern.

Listen to those stories and more on the podcast above.
