Résumé :

"The Unquiet Nisei draws on a collection of oral histories conducted by the author to relate the life story of Sue Kunitomi Embrey, a seminal Japanese-American activist. Diana Meyers Bahr traces Embrey's life from her youth in the Little Tokyo section of Los Angeles, to her grim experiences in the Manzanar World War II internment camp, and her many decades of passionate advocacy on behalf of Japanese American internees. Sue spoke out for more than three decades, bringing this dark chapter of American history into the light of congressional acknowledgment and a presidential apology. Illuminating the narrative is Embrey's passion in her resolute campaign to transform the former desolate internment camp into what is today the remarkable Manzanar National Historic Site."--BOOK JACKET.
