Event Description Una Storia Segreta: When Italian Americans Were "Enemy Aliens," a captivating exhibition curated by Dr. Lawrence DiStasi and Dr. Rose Scherini that delves into a lesser-known chapter of American history. During World War II, Italian Americans were designated as "enemy aliens" and subjected to discriminatory treatment, including forced relocation, internment, and surveillance. Through powerful photographs, documents, and personal stories, this exhibition sheds light on the experiences of Italian Americans during this period of fear and uncertainty. From the impact on families and communities to the time's broader political and social context, Una Storia Segreta offers a compelling and thought-provoking exploration of a forgotten chapter of American history. Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about the struggles and resilience of Italian Americans during a difficult time in our nation's past.
