S. Neil Fujita was an American citizen born to parents of Japanese American ancestry. Like more than 120,000 other Japanese Americans, Fujita and his family were forcibly relocated and incarcerated during World War II. After serving with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team in Europe, Fujita embarked on a brilliant art career, designing some of the most iconic album, book, and movie artwork of the mid-20th century—some of which you may even have hanging on your bedroom wall! Learn more about this gifted individual who overcame racism and discrimination, survived war, and left behind a powerful and creative legacy that still stands 100 years after his birth. This webinar is appropriate for grades nine and up.
