Description
Episode Description
"'Prisoners of Prejudice' is the audio component of the Annenberg/CPB audio course SOUND STUDIES IN AMERICAN HISTORY II. This 30-minute audio program places in historical context the forced evacuation and relocation of 120,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II. It incorporates the memories of three people who underwent that experience with excerpts from radio newscasts and official messages and reports of the period, and historical commentary by Professor Roger Daniels of the University of Cincinnati. "Created as part of an undergraduate audio course, the program intends to present the human consequences of racism and wartime hysteria to students and listeners. 'Prisoners of Prejudice' also provides historical insights into the political and economic causes and the legislative rationale for this unprecedented episode in American history. "Although the audio course was not marketed during 1986, the program's preview on the air and exposure through circulation to interested and expert persons indicates that it effectively realizes its objectives. The target audience is primarily the adult distance learner enrolled in this university 0-level credit-bearing course. However, it was also designed for general radio audiences and was aired by WHA Radio on August 6, 1986 as part of a commemoration of the 41st anniversary of Hiroshima. "Academic development of the full course was directed by Professor Margaret Beattie Bogue of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Roger Daniels, noted authority on wartime relocation activities, was guest scholar and content advisor for the program. The script was further reviewed by the Academic Advisory Committee for the course--Professors Frank Friedel of the University of Washington; Russell Menard, University of Minnesota; and Thomas Archdeacon, University of Wisconsin-Madison. "The study guide for the course and liner notes for the cassette package are attached. 'Prisoners of Prejudice' is the audio component for lesson #10 in the study guide."--1986 Peabody Awards entry form.
