EXHIBIT: Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II

Tipton County Museum, 751 Bert Johnston Ave, Covington, TN 38019, USA

In 1942, the U.S. government rounded up more than 120,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese nationals living in the United States and sent them to incarceration camps. Forty years later, community members pushed the nation to confront the wrong it had done—and to make it right.  By exploring this history and asking questions about the past, we discover interweaving stories of oppression, perseverance, and triumph that help us better understand the choices we face today
