Silence No More: Remembering the Japanese-American Internment

Silence No More: Remembering the Japanese-American Internment
McHenry Library
University of California, Santa Cruz
Fall 1997

This exhibit was coordinated with the exhibition tour of "A More Perfect Union: Japanese Americans and the U.S. Constitution" organized by the American Library Association and the Smithsonian Institution which was displayed at the downtown public library. McHenry Library's exhibit documents the history of the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, with a particular focus on California. It included art and photography created in the internment camps, the internment experience as reflected in Japanese- American literature and poetry, and the experience of Pajaro Valley's Japanese-American community documented through newspaper clippings of the time. Special highlights were the scholarly and artistic contributions of faculty and community members in Santa Cruz, including Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Kathy Foley, Alice Yang- Murray, and Nobuho Nagasawa. A reception for the exhibit was held on October 10 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the foyer of McHenry Library.
