Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience Opening Ceremony
March 2 @ 1:00 pm - May 4 @ 3:00 pm
Courage and Compassion chronicles the stories of Japanese Americans during and immediately after WWII, and highlights stories of bravery, integrity, and extraordinary support of Japanese Americans from the Chicago area. Through use of images, audio and interactive elements, Courage and Compassion provides a 360-degree perspective of the WWII experience of Americans of Japanese ancestry while exploring its relevance today.
Courage and Compassion will open with a ceremony on March 2, 2019 at 1-3pm, featuring a keynote by Go For Broke National Education Center President, Mitchell T. Maki. The exhibition will be on view at the Trickster Gallery from March 2nd to May 4th.
Funded in part by a grant from the National Park Service and American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Courage and Compassion is made possible through a collaboration between Go For Broke National Education Center, Chicago Japanese American Historical Society, Japanese American Service Committee, Chicago Japanese American Citizens League, and the Trickster Gallery.
