Life in Internment Camps and No-No Boy History

Welcome to Episode 42 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! It’s time to re-visit Japanese Internment again to talk a little more about how the “camps” were set-up and what life was like in them. Did you know the camps published newspapers that have been archived by the Library of Congress? We also explore some of the ways that Japanese Americans were de-humanized in the incarceration experience during WWII. We also take time to talk about John Okada’s book No-No Boy and its history. We close with an Olympics wrap-up to celebrate a few more Asian and Asian American athletes. In this episode, we reference the book Eating Asian America which is full of great papers on food and its impact in Asian American communities and culture, Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki, as well as the documentary Resistance at Tule Lake.
