When Sacramento Bee photojournalist Paul Kitagaki Jr. found images of his Japanese American family taken in 1942 by iconic American photographer Dorothea Lange as they waited for a bus in Oakland to begin their journey into detention, it began a 10-year quest to find and photograph the aging survivors of World War II internment. The traveling exhibit “Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit” mirrors historic images of Japanese Americans taken in 1942. Freelance photographer Stan Honda, formerly of AFP, will share his experiences and photographs of documenting survivors as well as former Japanese American internment camp sites.
