Caption under image reads, "TOO TIMID TO RAISE OUR VOICES--Sitting in their Florin, Calif., home last week, Al and Mary Tsukamoto display a copy of the 1942 order that forced their internment in Jerome, Ark., for 1 1/2 years. Among the 120,000 Japanese residents of the United States interned in 10 camps, the Tsukamotos say they were 'too timid to raises our voices,' and fight for their rights."
The Newspaper Photograph Collection is made up of photographs that were printed in the Long Beach Press-Telegram and Independent newspapers, between the 1950s and early 2000s.
