About the event
Manzanar: Their Footsteps Remain – 40 Years of Photography – The Exhibit. With over 40 years of material, and shaken by the recent events of extreme racism, mass imprisonment and racial inequity, it was time to share this collection of photographs with the world at large. The images are stark, desolate, haunting, and poignant. Like pottery shards discovered in an archeological dig, they give us clues to the story of a people who experienced intolerable indignities, fear, and racism while struggling for survival.
