Illuminating History

[metaslider id=2022]


To contextualize Gordon Hirabayashi’s story and to humanize the Japanese American experience, events in Japanese American community history will be highlighted on each of seven columns along the building’s street fronts. A sconce on each column will shine light through a historic photo or image that represents the historic event described on a plaque below.
