California Museum presents:

Uprooted! Japanese Americans During World War II

The California Museum’s longest running exhibit surveys a century of Japanese American history in California through the personal stories of formerly incarcerated Californians.

Although Japanese immigrants and their American-born children established businesses, built thriving communities and contributed to the state’s prosperity, they began to face hostility and discrimination following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Documentary featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban.  Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it.  And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times.
