Incorporating hundreds of objects, documents, and photographs collected by the Japanese American 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 many notable artifacts on display is a Heart Mountain barracks, an original structure saved and preserved from the concentration camp in Wyoming. In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, the landmark legislation that brought incarceration camp survivors an apology from the US government and monetary reparations, the last section of Common Ground was reimagined to further emphasize the historic achievements of the redress movement.
