National Japanese American Historical Society, Inc., San Francisco, CA.
This study guide was created to accompany the special exhibit "Strength and Diversity: Japanese American Women, 1885 to 1990" at The Oakland (California) Museum, February 17-May 13, 1990. The guide provides a supplement for studying the history of Japanese American women, their immigration, and acculturation. The guide touches upon important historical and sociological aspects of becoming an American, such as immigration, acculturation, discrimination, ethnic identity/pride, and cultural diversity. The guide is divided into four parts, including: (1) "Overview and Brief History"; (2) "Concepts and Biographies"; (3) "Activities"; and (4) "Bibliography." First-person accounts are included for the immigrant experience (Issei), the acculturation of the second generation U.S. born women (Nisei), and the cultural integration of the third and fourth generations (Sansei and Yonsei).
