Japanese Internment Camp Following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, 10 Japanese-American internment camps were set up in the United States. The two easternmost of these were located in the Arkansas towns of Rohwer and Jerome. Our trip to the Butler Center takes the viewer into their collection of items that help paint the portrait of life inside one of these camps.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Little Rock, Arkansas, on March 5-8 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
