This Humanities Texas traveling exhibition provides a historical overview of U.S. Latino participation in World War II and features historical photographs from the U.S. Latino & Latina WWII Oral History Project archives and contemporary photographs of men and women of the WWII generation by photojournalist Valentino Mauricio. It focuses on individual stories that reveal larger themes such as citizenship and civil rights and features excerpts from the more than five hundred oral history interviews that were part of the project.
The exhibit will be at the Moody Museum from Nov. 2 through Nov. 10. After the final day at the Moody the exhibit will move to the American Legion Hall for Veterans’ Day. The museum is open Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m. For more information, please contact the Moody Museum.
