In 2005, George West, a civics and economics teacher at Little Rock Central High, hosted in his classroom a group of Japanese-American visitors who, once held at the World War II Japanese internment camps at Rohwer and Jerome, had returned to Arkansas to take part in a memorial event sponsored by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies. The visitors told stories to West's students, who were encouraged to take notes and ask questions. West himself videotaped it.
