Gallery Exhibit by Bill Manbo
With the generous support of the Sakioka Family Fund and Jacquelyne Hata Alexander '84 P14 Fund for Japanese American Studies, we are proud to present a two-month gallery exhibit of rare color photographs by Bill Manbo, an internee at the Japanese American internment camp at Heart Mountain, Wyoming. The opening of the exhibit in March 2015 will be celebrated with a public roundtable discussion led by distinguished scholars from the fields of law, photography, and performance studies. We take the exhibit as an occasion for reflecting on this dark moment in American history and for opening up a larger conversation about the ongoing relationships among law, race, and visuality.
We regret that, due to security concerns, the exhibit has been taken down early.
