The “Images of Valor: U.S. Latinos and Latinas of WWII” exhibit will be open to the public at our Mission Historical Museum during regular operating hours through June 30th.
“Images of Valor: U.S. Latinos and Latinas of World War II 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. Images of Valor 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.
Images of Valor was created by the School of Journalism and Center for Mexican American Studies at The University of Texas at Austin and produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This exhibit will be open to the public during regular operating hours from May 22 – June 30.
Images of Valor is made possible in part by a We the People grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.” – Text from http://www.humanitiestexas.org/exhibitions/list/by-title/images-valor-us-latinos-and-latinas-world-war-ii
