This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, when President Ronald Reagan and the US government issued an apology and monetary compensation to survivors of the Japanese American concentration camps during World War II. This anniversary produced an unusually robust number of new books on the Japanese American experience before, during, and after World War II. We are pleased to include many of these titles in our catalog.
In addition to books on redress and resettlement, there are books honoring Japanese American artists and culture for young and adult readers; products related to our hapa.me and Kaiju vs Heroes: Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys exhibitions; new museum products such as the t-shirt below; and many more fun and thought-provoking products chosen to resonate with JANM’s mission to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Japanese American experience. All sale proceeds go directly to supporting the museum’s work.
Shop, share, and support!
