Summary:
In 1868, the Japanese began arriving in America illegally to work on Hawaiian pineapple and sugarcane plantations. By 1900, approximately 24,000 Japanese called America home, but their success made the rest of the country nervous, prompting the government to pass legislation limiting Japanese immigration. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor caused a crisis for Japanese Americans when the government sent 120,000 to internment camps, completely stripping them of their constitutional rights. Congress formally apologized for the internment, and since then, Japanese Americans have made significant contributions to American society, especially in the areas of science, medical research and the arts. Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
