with Professor Fred Hagstrom

The Friends of History/New Mexico History Museum invite you to a talk about the incarceration of people of Japanese descent during World War II. The talk, based on two artists' books Deeply Honored and Returning Home, covers the student relocation project, an initiative that allowed some students of college age to leave camp for their education, as well as the loyalty of Nisei who left camp to volunteer for military service.
This talk is being presented in conjunction with the Smithsonian traveling exhibit, Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II, which is currently on display at the New Mexico History Museum through December 31, 2022.
