Adams went into Manzanar with a goal. "He wanted to show these people as citizens -- people who were making a community out of what was a terrible injustice," said Linde Lehtinen, assistant curator at the Skirball Cultural Center. Adams' Manzanar photos were published in a book, "Born Free and Equal," in 1944. Reception to the book was mixed, to the say the least. There are accounts of so-called patriots burning the book and calling Adams "un-American" because he was sympathetic to Japanese-Americans, said Lehtinen.
