"Kokoro: The Story of Sacramento's Lost Japantown" Encore

Museum, Photography, History/Science

This exhibition, a reprise from 2017, features family photographs drawn from community members' personal collections that document the memories at the heart of a once-thriving downtown community devastated first by forced removal during WWII and again by redevelopment in the 1950s. This show commemorates the 2018 anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the presidential decree that led to the unconstitutional incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans signed on Feb. 19, 1942.
