75 years after Executive Order 9066 uprooted all Japanese Americans from their homes on the West coast, the Topaz Museum will officially open its doors and tell the story of 11,000 of those people who were falsely accused of being a threat during WWII and sent to Topaz.

 We invite you to attend the July 7-8, 2017 Grand Opening of the Topaz Museum located in Delta, Utah.

 Don Tamaki, civil rights attorney who served on the Korematsu case legal team, and Dr. Franklin Odo, former director of the Asian Pacific American Program at the Smithsonian Institution and Visiting Professor at Amherst College, will be the featured speakers.  Shirley Muramoto will perform traditional koto music.
