Voices of the SGV: A Critical Approach to History
In this presentation, Sara Quezada and I will share recent developments in our school district with regards to an Ethnic Studies Program. Our efforts include a collaboration with doctoral students in history from Columbia University. These historians published a series of articles about local history in the San Gabriel Valley. This session will highlight one specific essay about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II and the segregated environment Mexican Americans and Japanese Americans endured during the 1930s and 1940s.
