Join the SHSMO Rolla Research Center and Missouri S&T Archives as we learn more about the Japanese American experience during World War II with a combination poster exhibit and showcase of materials and items from the two archives. Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II was developed by the National Museum of American History and adapted by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The traveling and poster exhibitions are supported by a grant from the Asian Pacific American Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, the Teraski Family Foundation, and C.L. Ehn & Ginger Lew.
