japanese-internment-relocation-photograph-1942

Taken in 1942, this photograph documents the internment of over 100,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans living on the Pacific Coast. Despite the fact that they were wrongfully excluded from society, it wasn’t until 1988 that DC apologized for their race prejudice and war hysteria.
