Today's broadcast of Radio CALS (9/13/2017) features Primary Sources and an interview with Delphine Hirasuna.

This week on Primary Sources, we’ve dug through our archives to present an interview with curator, author, and historian Delphine Hirasuna. She is the author of The Art of Gaman: Arts and Crafts from the Japanese American Internment Camps 1942-1946.  She curated a traveling exhibition of the same name in 2010, which toured throughout the United States and Japan. This interview was conducted in 2011 for the Butler Center’s exhibition The Art of Living, which displayed works of art created by Japanese Americans incarcerated at Rohwer Relocation Center in Rohwer, Arkansas during World War II.
