"Arkansas. What does that have to do with The Red Kimono?
When I first began writing down the story that had floated around
in my head since I was a child, I didn't realize there had been two
Japanese American internment camps in Arkansas.
The Rohwer and Jerome internment camps in southeast Arkansas
changed the story I eventually told in The Red Kimono. From
September 1942 through November 1945, these two camps
housed approximately 16,000 internees and based on population,
were the 3rd and 4th largest cities in Arkansas."
