AT FIRST LIGHT Opens This Weekend

Opening on this Saturday, May 25,  at the Japanese American National Museum, At First Light: The Dawning of Asian Pacific America draws from hundreds of thousands of photographs and more than 100 videos in VC’s collections and chronicles the transformation of the un-American categorization of “Oriental” to the political identity of “Asian Pacific American” that rejected racist stereotypes, stood up for human rights, recovered lost histories, and created new cultural expressions.

May 25 to Octobeer 20, 2019
