Japanese American Service Committee is excited to be a part of this upcoming exhibit with the Alphawood Gallery: Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans During WWII and the Demise of Civil Liberties.
JASC is consulting with Alphawood to create an experience that will speak to both the great injustice of the WWII incarceration and the current political climate to provoke conversation.
The exhibition will draw on photos by Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others included in the recent book Un-American: The Incarceration of Japanese Americans During World War II by Chicago authors and photo historians Richard Cahan and Michael Williams. Archival items from JASC and other Japanese American organizations and individuals will also be a part of the exhibit.
Opening in phases during the year, the first phase is set to open in June 2017.
