From Citizens to Enemy Aliens: Japanese Americans and the History of Anti-Asian Xenophobia, Jewish Museum of Milwaukee, March 15

Join me at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee at 7PM (CDT) on Tuesday, March 15, for a public lecture on the wartime mass incarceration of Japanese Americans and the longer history of pervasive anti-Asian xenophobia in the United States. Explore how Japanese Americans negotiated, reclaimed, and redefined ideas about home, citizenship, belonging, and what it means to be American throughout the twentieth century.

This event is part of the exhibition, Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans During WWII and the Demise of Civil Liberties.

This program has both in-person and virtual options.

Japanese American Incarceration and the Teaching of Asian American History, March 22, 2022

I am pleased to be part of a professional development workshop for Chicago public school teachers on the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans and the teaching of Asian American history. I will present a session introducing teachers to critical themes in Asian American history. This program is sponsored by Facing History & Ourselves in support of the implementation of the TEAACH (Teaching Equitable Asian American Community History) Act, which makes Illinois the first state to require Asian American history be taught in public schools.

Please register and/or pass it along to those you know who may be interested in participating:
