This poster exhibition traces the story of Japanese national and Japanese American incarceration during World War II. Young and old lived crowded together in hastily built camps, endured poor living conditions, and were under the constant watch of military guards. Some 40 years later, members of the Japanese American community led the nation to confront the wrong it had done—and urged Congress to make it right. Embracing themes that are as relevant today as they were 75 years ago, the poster exhibition examines identity, immigration, prejudice, civil rights, courage, and what it means to be an American.
Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II was developed by the National Museum of American History and adapted by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The traveling exhibition and poster exhibition are supported by a grant from the Asian Pacific American Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, the Terasaki Family Foundation, and C. L. Ehn & Ginger Lew.
