Japanese Relocation And Internment

Featuring a range of primary source documents from political cartoons to United States Supreme Court dockets, this exhibit examines the legal processes and the military justifications used to enact Japanese relocation and internment during World War II. How did the federal government suspend the constitutional rights of hundreds of thousands of citizens? What motivated those decisions? How did racism especially influence and enable the decisions for relocation and internment?
