Book Summary:

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.

Book Summary:

Now available in ebook format--one of the important books that marked the beginning of the ongoing conversation about slavery and our nation's history. From the sixth great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson and enslaved woman Sally Hemmings comes an anthology of Jefferson's living descendants. Told in the style of a family photo album—with a combination of photographs and interviews—Jefferson’s Children is the riveting story of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemming’s sixth great-grandson, Shannon Lanier’s, travels across the country to meet his relatives from both sides of the family. The profiles contained chart the multiple perspectives of Jefferson’s and Hemming’s descendants, from those who embrace their heritage to those who want nothing to do with Jefferson’s legacy. A fascinating picture soon emerges, one that begins with a pairing of two individuals with vastly disparate levels of power—on the one side, the third president of the United States and the author of the Declaration of Independence; on the other, the woman who was his property—and that ultimately represents America’s complicated history with issues of diversity and race and the unusual ways in which we define family. An ALA Best Book for Young Adults “The portraits that emerge are as generous and jumbled as America itself.” —The New York Times “A book about American history, racial identity and the bonds of family that will help young people navigate these difficult areas.” —Black Issues Book Review
