Nosotros High School Students and the Legacy of Japanese Incarceration

During the 2017/18 school year, Nosotros Academy high school students have been working with Torran Anderson via a grant provided by the Bureau of Cultural and Educational Affairs to study Japanese American Incarceration during World War II. This project has taken the students on various field trips (Mt Lemon’s incarceration camp and the Japanese Cultural Festival at Pima Community College) and has put them in touch to interview Japanese Americans who were incarcerated during the war. Future activities include a trip to the Tucson Holocaust Museum and the students producing their final projects (which will include writing, visual art, and video).
