This is Joanne Wakatsuki. She is 7 years old and her 10 siblings, parents, and grandmother. Her dad runs a fishing boat. Her and her family are oriental.
On December 7, 1941, the Japanese bombed Pearl harbor and there was panic. All the Japanese people in america were in question for possibly aiding japan.
Everyone take cover! Pearl Harbor is under attack! Im gonna take ya'll in for questioning,
Joanne and her family where put in concentration camps until they could get the whole thing straightened out. Most of her family were in the same block. She tried to change her religion to catholic but her dad put a stop to it. They stayed there in misery for 4 years.
In 1945, her and her family were released from the concentration camp and they moved to Cabrillo Homes on the East coast. Most of her siblings have moved out to New Jersey. All she wanted at school was to be saw for her and not the new oriental kid.
Wow, I wish I was as normal and as accepted as she is...
What are YOU looking at? SHE'S an American citizen. She's got just as much right as anyone else to walk around on the street!
As time went by, she was accepted by society more and more. She became the leas majorette of the baton twirlers and later was voted carnival queen of 1951 at her highschool.
In about 1967, Joanne was the first of her family to marry out of her race and finish college. Her and her husband and kids went on a family trip to visit Manzanar and when they got there, the kids played while she had remorse on the old times when all of her family was together in their true home; Manzanar.
