Program Length: Approximately 30-60 minutes
Available: Tuesday through Friday
Cost: $3 per student and per teacher/adult chaperone FREE thanks to a generous sponsorship from the Aratani Foundation

The Defining Courage Exhibition tells the story of the Japanese American World War II experience through a contemporary lens. The exhibition explores the concept of courage through the lives of the young Japanese Americans of World War II, and asks modern visitors to act with similar courage in their own lives. Students will use critical thinking to identify meaning and construct their own story. Teachers will be supplied with pre-visit and post-visit materials to supplement their field trip. School groups are limited to 60 students. Each participant will receive a free ticket to return at a later date. To schedule a school group please contact Tessa Cencula at tessa@goforbroke.org or (310) 222-5711.
