Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau Presentation
The Pine and the Cherry: Japanese Americans in Washington
with Mayumi Tsutakawa at 7:00 p.m.

On February 19, 1942 President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing the forced removal and incarceration of more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry from the West Coast to concentration camps. Between 1942 and 1944, thousands left the camps to work in seasonal farm labor. This exhibit introduces their story.

Uprooted features a selection of photographs from Russell Lee’s documentation of Japanese American farm labor camps near the towns of Nyssa, Oregon and Rupert, Shelley, and Twin Falls, Idaho. As a photographer for the Farm Security Administration, Lee captured nearly six hundred images of the Japanese American wartime experience.

Uprooted is supported, in part, by grants from the National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites Preservation Program; the Idaho Humanities Council, a State-based Program of the National Endowment for the Humanities; and the Fred W. Fields Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation.
