      "Kokoro: The Story of Sacramento's Lost Japantown" Encore

      Back by popular demand, “Kokoro: The Story of Sacramento’s Lost Japantown” returns for an unprecedented second installation Jan. 16 through Mar. 11, 2018 at the California Museum. Featuring rare family photographs drawn from community members' personal collections, this 2017 exhibit documents the memories at the heart of a once-thriving downtown community devastated first by forced removal during WWII and again by redevelopment in the 1950s. Developed in partnership with former residents of Sacramento’s Japantown, author of “Sacramento’s Historic Japantown” Kevin Wildie and others, the encore presentation commemorates the 2018 anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the presidential decree that led to the unconstitutional incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans signed on Feb. 19, 1942.
