Join the JANM Education Unit for this virtual workshop on using the art of Miné Okubo’s Citizen 13660 in the classroom. Published in 1946, Citizen 13660 was the first book-length acount of America’s concentration camps from the perspective of a former incarceree. Through a series of nearly 200 illustrations, each accompanied by a caption, Okubo documented how World War II and the subsequent incarceration upended her life, providing a unique, first-person perspective of this chapter in American history.

While this program is open to all active K–12 educators, this workshop is most applicable for educators who work with grade 6–12.

In this workshop, classroom educators will:

  • Learn about Miné Okubo and the creation of Citizen 13660,
  • Practice teaching strategies for engaging students in the art and text of Citizen 13660,
  • Discover how to access the Miné Okubo Collection and more through janm.org.

Advance registration required. All participating classroom educators will be mailed a FREE copy of Miné Okubo’s Citizen 13660 following the workshop.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Miné Okubo’s Masterpiece: The Art of Citizen 13660, on view at JANM through February 20, 2022.
