Description
On the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor comes a harrowing and enlightening look at the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II from National Book Award finalist Albert Marrin Just seventy-five years ago, the American government did something that most would consider unthinkable today: it rounded up over 100,000 of its own citizens based on nothing more than their ancestry and, suspicious of their loyalty, kept them in concentration camps for the better part of four years. How could this have happened? Uprooted takes a close look at the history of racism in America and carefully follows the treacherous path that led one of our nation's most beloved presidents to make this decision. Meanwhile, it also illuminates the history of Japan and its own struggles with racism and xenophobia, which led to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, ultimately tying the two countries together. Today, America is still filled with racial tension, and personal liberty in wartime is as relevant a topic as ever. Moving and impactful, National Book Award finalist Albert Marrin's sobering exploration of this monumental injustice shines as bright a light on current events as it does on the past.

Description
Just seventy-five years ago, the American government did something that most would consider unthinkable today: it rounded up over 100,000 of its own citizens based on nothing more than their ancestry and, suspicious of their loyalty, kept them in concentration camps for the better part of four years. Here, listeners will be introduced to people like Mine Okubo, a Japanese American artist who spent years in the camps as a young woman and later depicted their nightmarish conditions in her work. They'll also meet Daniel Inouye, a Japanese American soldier who earned a Purple Heart for his service to America in the war--only to be refused a haircut in San Francisco upon his return. Without stories like these, the portrait of America during World War II is incomplete. And though media depictions of World War II are plentiful, the Pacic Theater is often glossed over in favor of discussions about the action in Europe. Today, America is still lled with racial tension, and personal liberty in wartime is as relevant a topic as ever.
