The frames do not contain the individual&rsquo\;s name or image\; only their assigned number and other s elect information from the public archive War Relocation Authority records will be displayed. The information is matted with the traditional portrai t mat to signify that these &ldquo\;numbers&rdquo\; are people. The dehuma nized portrait represents how the US government saw them. The listing of a ssigned numbers without names provides a narrative framework to a Japanese American cultural memory that references the sociopolitical and historica l issues of subjugation and injustice. Archive files placed in the gallery opposite the wall of frames re-humanizes the individuals by highlighting significant events in their lives or after death\, their many wonderful ac complishments and contributions during and after the camps\, and their str uggles to overcome the historical travesty of justice Americans imposed up on Americans sixty-seven years ago.\n </em>\n<em>\n</em> SUMMARY:"With Liberty and Justice for Some"..Barbara Horiuchi Art Exhibitio n URL:/en/events/2009/11/16/with-liberty-and-justice-for-somebarbara-horiu/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
