Coming to you is an exhibition marking its 75th year since the Western Defense Commander Lieutenant General John L. DeWitt sat at his desk in Building 35 at the Presidio and signed 108 Civilian Exclusion Orders. The Exclusion exhibition has been in collaboration with the Fred T. Korematsu Institute and National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS) and invites visitors to investigate the choice both personal and political that led to this dark chapter in American history. This is a time to reflect on what we have learned that helps us address present-day issues of mass incarceration, immigration reform, and racial profiling.
