“I Am an American: Japanese Incarceration in a Time of Fear” opened on Aug. 25 and closed on Nov. 3 at the Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center. Presented in partnership with the Anaheim Public Library, the exhibition focused on the Japanese American pioneers of Anaheim and their experiences before, during and after World War II.
