The Japanese American Story
by S Floyd Mori
Many people are not aware that 120,000 American citizens and immigrants of Japanese heritage were forcibly removed from their West Coast homes after the start of World War II. Most were incarcerated in camps for the duration of the war.
Learn about the history of Japanese Americans from this book. Some well known and little known facts and events are covered as well as personal experiences being shared. The book title is: The Japanese American Story As Told Through a Collection of Speeches and Articles. This indicates that it is not a chronological retelling of history, but it contains parts of the history as presented to different groups at various times.
S. Floyd Mori has spoken numerous times and has written many articles about the Japanese American and Asian American experience, which includes the mass incarceration of innocent persons simply because of their ethnic background. The book of speeches and articles also covers other issues of civil rights.
Floyd was National President and later National Executive Director/CEO of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), the nation's oldest and largest Asian American civil and humanitarian organization. The speeches and articles were written while he represented the JACL for ten years.
Floyd was born and raised in Utah. He taught Economics for ten years at Chabot College in Hayward, California. He has been a Mayor of Pleasanton, Caliifornia, and a California State Assemblyman as well as an International Business Consultant and small business owner.
