Description
 
Documents the lives of generations of Japanese immigrants through their diaries, letters, interviews, photos, newspaper articles, and personal reflections. Many faced racial prejudice, violence, and even laws that effectively stopped Japanese immigration. Nevertheless, Japanese immigrants formed labor unions, purchased land, built farms, and established communities in many western states. Their success often aroused jealousy and fear, spurring the proliferation of hate groups, boycotts of Japanese shops and bus., and eventually the internment camps of WW2. Despite these experiences, Japanese Americans (JA) flourished in the U.S. Includes profiles of JA artist Isamu Noguchi and astronaut Ellison Onizuka. Over 100 photos.
