"The Japanese-American Experience During World War II: Telling the Story of a Forgotten Chapter in Arkansas History."
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock Public History Program with assistance from the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles has begun a three year project to tell the story of the internment camps that were located in Arkansas during World War II. In the fall of 2004, the project will culminate in a traveling exhibit, documentary, symposium, several publications, and educational materials. As the eastern most camps, Jerome and Rohwer (Arkansas) have virtually been ignored. This project will place the Arkansas camps in context with what occurred on the West Coast. It will also examine the relationship between the citizens of Arkansas and the Japanese-Americans as well as the effect the camps had on both.
