Ralph L. Carr Bust

1905 Lawrence Street
Denver, CO 80302

Su to Sa from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM

In the 1940s during World War II, many Japanese-Americans and Japanese citizens living in the United States were forced into internment camps for the supposed safety of the American people, a dark moment in history that few protested at the time. One of the few was Denver mayor Ralph L. Carr, who not only publicly stood against discrimination of the Japanese during the war but was the only American politician to publicly apologized for the internment, which he did in 1942. The apology cost him a potential Senate appointment, but the Japanese community in Denver never forgot his actions. When Sakura Square opened, one of the first statues put up in the garden was a bust of Mayor Carr. The inscription and care given to the statue to this day show how much the words of one man can be remembered by the entire community. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh
