THE COLOR OF HONOR: The Japanese American Soldier in WWII
island of secret memories (High School to adult)

ANCESTORS IN THE AMERICAS
•Ancestors Part One - 62 minutes
•Ancestors Part Two - 60 minutes
(High School - Adult)

ANCESTORS IN THE AMERICAS is the first in-depth television series to present the early history and contemporary legacy of Asian immigrants to the Americas, from the 1700s to the early 1900s. The programs tell the little-known stories of these early immigrants, and their pioneering struggle for basic rights, and their lasting cultural, legal and economic contributions to the building of America. Using an innovative "documemoir" approach, ANCESTORS brings to life this largely undocumented past, not found in standard text books, and invites a new understanding of American history. (Viewer Guides are available online).

"In an intimate and accessible way, ANCESTORS IN THE AMERICAS tells a sweeping story....This is history that surprises; its artful presentation is a unique and wonderful achievement."

Sandra Heberer, PBS Director of News and Information Programming
