Harada House Community Outreach & Educational Programming

Harada HouseThe Museum of Riverside initiated Reading the Walls: Riverside Stories of Internment and Return to document the personal recollections of Riverside’s Japanese and Japanese American community before, during, and immediately following World War II.

This significant project was made possible through funds provided by the California Council for the Humanities and the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program. The Museum has collected stories and documents and integrated them into a curriculum package for teachers, aligned with local and national 11th grade U.S. History standards. Through oral histories and primary source materials available online and in a published workbook, teachers and students are able to draw on the authentic experiences of Riversiders to illuminate the political, social, and economic causes and consequences of Executive Order 9066.
