Term Paper by Michiko Mikami for period III Social Problems class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Michiko focuses on the injustices done to his family and himself in events leading up to and including the mass removal. He mentions that his father was detained by the FBI for several months with no explanation and as a result he had to fill in at his family grocery store. Due to this he had to drop out of school. He comments on the multi-cultural nature of the country, but realizes that not every race is treated equally. He ends by stating that he had many hopes for the future before the war, but now just wants to be able to take care of his parents. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9017.
