Description

Title:Humor in the Face of Injustice
Author(s):Carter, Marjorie
Subject(s):Literature
Abstract:Humor in the Face of Injustice” is an essay which analyzes Miné Okubo’s Citizen 13660 specific to its importance as a source in the history of Japanese internment camps in the United States. While her audience was intended for only family and friends, the publication became a sourcebook for the Japanese internment camps due to the lack of photographs and documentation that are in existence. The essay examines the author’s illustrations which are comprised of black and white illustrations followed by a brief narrative. Okubo uses humor and irony in order to document the inhumane living conditions and breach of human rights for these individuals. Studies show the importance of humor, and Okubo’s autobiographical book is proof of her resilience and determination to make the best of tragic life circumstances.
