Presents


Year of Remembrance: Glimpses of a Forever Foreigner

On display February 17, 2017 – February 11, 2018


On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which resulted in the forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans. They were charged with no crime. The cause of their imprisonment was their ancestry.


This exhibition recognizes the 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066, and explores historic and contemporary issues of racism, discrimination and human rights.

Juneteenth commemorates the true ending of slavery in the United States.

On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers under the leadership of Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston and notified those still under the yoke of slavery that they were free.  This was two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.
