Day of Rememberance

For those of you in Los Angeles this weekend there will be a Day of Remembrance at the Japanese American National Museum. The Day of Remembrance commemorates President Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066 which ultimately led to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. This year's event will include a panel discussion that will examine Executive Power from a historical and present day perspective.

Also at the Japanese American National Museum this weekend will be the conclusion of Ansel Adams at Manzanar. This exhibit includes over 50 prints of the Manzanar internment camp in California from famed photographer Ansel Adams.
