It was one of the most shameful episodes in American history: the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese nationals in concentration camps in the western United States during World War II. To honor the 25th anniversary of the federal legislation atoning for that great wrong, the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, Community Works NYC is presenting two exhibitions that explore the impact of civil injustice and its continuing resonance over generations.

Through photographic portraits and reminiscences, the Japanese American Internment Project: If they came for me today…East Coast Stories explores the lives of seven men and women from New York who were interned or impacted by the incarceration of Japanese American citizens during World War II. This living history exhibit was developed with NYC students who conducted the interviews.

A companion exhibit, Spirit of Community: Japanese American Artists , features the work of two of the honorees, Tomie Arai and Koho Yamamoto , and of Dorothy Imagire , all of whom illustrate the timeless
role the arts play in shaping, informing and documenting culture.
The reception on September 19th will include remarks by noted Columbia University historian Gary Okihiro and participating students, introductions to the honorees, and performances by Soh Daiko and Harlem’s youth ensemble Impact Repertory Theatre.

This is a public art and exhibition program of Community Works NYC as part of its Community Matters NYC initiative.
•Exhibition is open to the public: September 9‐October 11, 2013• Monday‐Friday 9am‐5pm•
