Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American WWII Experience is in Kingsburg through February 4th

The Kingsburg Historical Society is hosting a new traveling exhibit on the Japanese American experience during the Second World War. The small farming community is known today for its Swedish heritage, but before the interment of citizens in domestic concentration camps during the war, it had a vibrant Japanese American community. The new exhibit, "Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American WWII Experience" is on a nationwide tour from the Go For Broke National Education Center, with support from the National Park Service. Kingsburg is one of just two Californian cities on the exhibit's itinerary. We recently spoke with David Meyer, local curator for the exhibit, which is on display at the Kingsburg Historical Park through February 4, 2018.
