Faces of Civil Rights, Then and Now: Paul Kitagaki Jr.'s Gambatte! Project

“The faces from the photographs staring up at me as I searched for my family in the National Archives have always haunted me,” Paul Kitagaki Jr., recalls. “I wanted to know the story behind the faces and discover how they survived and created a new life after the war.”

The noted photographer and videographer—a Sansei whose work has been honored with dozens of awards, including the Pulitzer Prize—had family members who had been unjustly incarcerated in American concentration camps during World War II.

“I learned of Executive Order 9066 in my 10th grade history class in 1970,” Kitagaki ...

Commemorating a Justice Landmark: 30 Years of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988

It took just seconds for U.S. President Ronald Reagan to sign the document. Yet the journey to that moment spanned more than four decades.

The Civil Liberties Act of 1988 was the culmination of a multiyear movement to seek justice for Japanese Americans forced to live in wartime concentration camps solely because of their Japanese ancestry. After Reagan signed it into law, the Act granted reparations of $20,000 and a formal presidential apology to every surviving U.S. citizen or legal resident immigrant of Japanese ancestry incarcerated during World War II.

The act cited “racial prejudice, wartime hysteria ...

Q&A with Artist Kip Fulbeck: The Continuing Legacy of The Hapa Project - Part 1

Artist/writer/performer Kip Fulbeck launched The Hapa Project in 2001, photographing more than 1,200 people of mixed Asian or Pacific Islander heritage. His intent was to raise awareness and understanding of multiracial people and to help them (especially children) form positive self-identities. The work led to a landmark book and related exhibition in 2006: kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa.

In the years since, he has spawned multiple books and exhibitions, spoken throughout the U.S. and abroad, and had his work shown in more than 20 countries. In his latest exhibition, hapa.me, on view at the ...

Finding Asian American Family Histories: Genealogist Marisa Louie Lee

“I will never forget seeing my great-grandfather’s photograph in his immigration case file,” Marisa Louie Lee recalls. “The moment I opened the folder and saw the spitting image of my grandfather in front of me, I knew it was him. I cried in the research room!”

For Lee, a researcher and genealogist, exploring family histories has a lot of personal meaning.

“I have always been my family’s de facto ‘family historian,’ starting with the family newsletter I wrote and edited in elementary school,” she says. “As a sophomore in college, I paid a visit to the National Archives ...
