Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II

Monday, February 19, 2018, 6:00 PM - 1:30 AM

February 19, 2017, is the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. This three-page document signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt changed the course of history for a segment of Americans of Japanese ancestry in America, and challenged the constitutional rights of these Americans. The National Museum of American History will commemorate the event through an exhibition marking its anniversary. Curators are actively reaching out to the Japanese American community to help identify and collect artifacts for this powerful exhibit. These artifacts are crucial in leading the public memory to understand the many narratives of Japanese American imprisonment during WWII.
