Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II
The Smithsonian traveling exhibition “Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II” will be on view in the Keller Gallery beginning March 25. The exhibition examines the complicated history and impact of Executive Order 9066 that led to the incarceration of Japanese Americans following the attack on Pearl Harbor. Embracing themes that are as relevant today as they were 75 years ago, “Righting a Wrong” looks at immigration, prejudice, civil rights, heroism, and what it means to be an American. The exhibition explores the complex history through historical images, personal stories and objects from those incarcerated at the camps.
