From 2 to 4 pm, Saturday, January 29, 2011, the Sawtelle Stories Forum IV is scheduled for the Social Hall, West Los Angeles Buddhist Temple.  The focus of panel discussions shall be the Sawtelle JapanTown resettlement of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.  Redlined West Los Angeles precluded Nikkei from owning real property in Bel Air, Brentwood and Westwood which caused Nikkei to gravitate to the Sawtelle ghetto immediately after WWII.  The role of the hostels and boarding houses in Sawtelle shall be explored.

Free admission.  Ample parking available.
