A graduate of Mills College, Catherine Ladnier learns about the unjust imprisonment of Mills students and their families. Catherine has written a play to showcase the
experiences of Japanese American Mills College students during WWII through letters to college president Aurelia Henry Reinhardt. Reinhardt (one of the first female Ph.D. graduates from Yale University) and her staff defied the prejudice and hysteria of the time to support their Nisei students from their internment camps. Mills theater students will perform the roles of their Mills sisters.
