The legacy of a photograph
During the transportation of Japanese Americans to the Minidoka incarceration camp, a news photographer told Mitsuye Yamada and her family to smile for a photograph. The photograph ran on The Seattle Times' front page on August 14, 1942, and compelled Yamada to write her poem 'Evacuation' while in camp. (Corinne Chin and Ramon Dompor / The Seattle Times)
