Learn the stories behind the photographs of “Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit” in a special presentation by photojournalist Paul Kitagaki, Jr. on Saturday, April 25 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
Since 2005, Kitagaki has mirrored historic images of Japanese Americans taken in 1942 by War Relocation Authority staff including Dorothea Lange and Tom Parker with his own contemporary photographs of the same individuals documenting their legacy of strength and perseverance over their incarceration during WWII.
Presented in partnership with The Sacramento Bee, tickets include entry to presentation plus admission to the Museum’s current exhibits and parking in the surface street lot at 10th & O Streets. Proceeds benefit updates to the permanent exhibit, “Uprooted! Japanese Americans During WWII” through a matching grant from the National Parks Services.
