About the Program

In 1942, Bill Manbo (1908-1992) and his family were relocated from their Hollywood home to a Japanese American internment camp at Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming.  While at the camp, Mr. Manbo took numerous photographs that documented the day-to-day life of the Japanese Americans held at Heart Mountain.  Eric Muller, editor of Colors of Confinement and professor of Jurisprudence and Ethics at the University of North Carolina School of Law presents photographs from the late Bill Manbo's collection.  Eric Muller speaks at Heart Mountain Interpretive Learning Center in Powell, Wyoming.
