Sylvia & Aki af Winifred Conkling

Lektionsplaner af Liane Hicks

Sylvia & Aki er en prisvindende historisk fiktionroman skrevet i 2015. Den fortæller den sande historie om et uventet venskab mellem Sylvia Mendez og Aki Munemitsu, der befandt sig i centrum for to forskellige uretfærdighedssystemer i USA i 1940'erne. . Aki og hendes familie er japanske amerikanere, der sammen med titusinder af andre blev tvunget til at forlade deres hjem og blive fængslet i en interneringslejr i hele 2. verdenskrig. Mens Munemitsus blev interneret, lejede de deres gård i Westminster, CA til Mendez-familien. Sylvia var begejstret for at gå på sin nye skole i Westminster, men hun og hendes brødre nægtes alle adgang på grund af deres mexicanske arv. Sylvias far begynder et korstog for at afslutte skoleseparationen i Californien. Forfatter Winifred Conkling fletter smukt sammen disse to sande historier om enormt mod og mod i lyset af uretfærdighed og racisme i denne turbulente periode i amerikansk historie.
