Presentation Transcript


Issei people born in japan who moved to the u s and settled here

  • The children in the previous Dorothea Lange photograph were students at Raphael Weill Public School (subsequently renamed the Rosa Parks School), located in the heart of “Little Tokyo” in San Francisco.

  • It was 1942, just one month before all people of Japanese descent in San Francisco, including all of the Japanese American children depicted in this photograph, were removed and sent to internment camps.

  • In Korematsu v. U.S. (1944), the Supreme Court upheld the Japanese-American internment orders.

  • One year after the internment of Japanese-Americans began, the Supreme Court held in West Virginia v. Barnette(1943) that a state may not require schoolchildren to salute the American flag or to pledge allegiance to it.
