The Plight of Japanese American Farmers

In baseball the fourth player in the batting order is known as the cleanup hitter. So I like to think since I was the fourth speaker at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at North Carolina State University yesterday that made me the cleanup speaker.

I enjoyed speaking about the plight of Japanese American farmers during World War II. One thing about speaking to a group of educated older adults is they are not afraid to ask questions. Perhaps the best question was were the Japanese in Hawaii put in internment camps during WWII? The answer was no because about half the population of Hawaii was Japanese so logistically it would have been a daunting task.
