February 2008

Parker, Ariz. 
Over 800 people attended the free screenings of a new documentary film, called "Passing Poston."

Four former Poston Relocation Center internees were interviewed. Those in attendance included a number of local Parker school administrators and teachers, the town's mayor and local city government officials, county board of supervisors as well as several former Poston internees.

The film and the discussions followed, and was reported to increase the awareness of the history of Poston and its importance to the people living in the local area.
