Bitter Sacrifices: Art and Writing from Arkansas’s World War II Japanese American Incarceration Centers
Between 1942 and 1945, more than 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast were incarcerated at ten centers around the country, including at Rohwer and Jerome, Arkansas, for looking like the enemy. The CALS Butler Center for Arkansas Studies holds the single largest collection of art and writing from the camps.
Heather Zbinden, CALS Roberts Library programs and website coordinator, will talk about this chapter in American and Arkansas history, showing some of the creative works left behind.
