Japanese American National Museum presents Common Ground. The Heart of Community

The Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles presents Common Ground. The Heart of Community an ongoing exhibition.

Incorporating hundreds of objects, documents and photographs collected by the National Museum, this exhibition chronicles 130 years of Japanese American history, beginning with the early days of the Issei pioneers through the World War II incarceration to the present.
Among the notable artifacts on display is a Heart Mountain barracks, an original structure saved and preserved from the concentration camp in Wyoming.
In the summer of 2010, museum volunteers worked with staff and interns to create a series of 30-second digital video shorts sharing the volunteer’s personal stories related to artifacts from the exhibition Common Ground: The Heart of Community.
