Examining Internment

Journalist, historian, and artist Setsuko Winchester spoke about a dark chapter in American history

On Monday, October 2, Darrow welcomed artist, NPR correspondent, and historian Setsuko Winchester, and her husband, New York Times bestselling author Simon Winchester, to talk to students and faculty about Setsuko's Freedom from Fear/Yellow Bowl Project, which combines photography and ceramics to convey the history of Japanese internment camps (which she refers to as concentration camps) during WWII.


They spoke at the invitation of Dana Katz's "Immigrant Literature" class, and were joined by students from Writing and Literature II & III, U.S. History, and Historical Methods. You can learn more about her project at http://www.yellowbowlproject.com/ #darrowschool
