Reconstruction failed and dismantling racism failed because the starting point of racism as a core attribute of this society is in the Native American genocide … As long as we do not start with this foundational experience, we can not build anything of a different nature than racist institutions.
I agree and we have a lot of work to do in this regard as well. We’re working to include Native American Studies as part of our district curriculum and we know this is just the beginning.
This timeline is absolutely amazing. Thank you to Keidra, Phung, and Chris for the incredible work on this. We are so lucky to have such dedicated, talented faculty at Valley!
What an awesome timeline! Thank you for doing this important work!
I agree - the timeline with illustrations is great!
Absolutely amazing work -- thorough, vital and necessary information to support the work we all need to do.
Thanks for the access info. I was going to ask for that!
Great work! Thank you. I will forward the timeline link to our ASU students. I'm sorry to leave but I have Enrollment Management.
Great work to all three of you on this project! Impressive
Also thanks to Luiza for making the vision of this timeline a reality.
Impressive work. This should be promoted broadly. Thank you!
What is the context of these illustrations?
The recruitment of the Japanese in concentration camps was in Burbank.
I cycle around that area and have always wondered why no one bothered putting up a sign with the history of the place.
Sharing because we live close by and though you might find it interesting and also how close it is to home.
The context of the illustrations, Eugenia, was a depression in the 1870's and the claims of the white working class that Asian immigrants were "stealing" the jobs of white workers.
But where were they published, Chris?
Doesn't that "reasoning" still hold true today too? If not the Chinese, then the Mexican or the Muslims
Thomas Nast, Harper's Weekly
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Is there a prompt?
On the topic of Dr. Seuss, at the same time that he was drawing racist anti-Japanese cartoons (https://apjjf.org/data/5063_-_1.jpg), he was also forward-thinking when it came to black-white relations and advocated for African-American equal employment, such as in this cartoon (https://library.ucsd.edu/dc/object/bb1092978w/_3.jpg). It’s an interesting paradox.
I will want to offer extra credit to my students for contributing to the Anti-Racism art project -- will you be sending out information how to contribute?
his show at moca a couple of years avows incredible
Good point. Thank you John!
he went to LACC!
Yellow Peril Supports Black Power! is making a comeback in 2021.
Me too...EC to my students to participate but need some kind of prompt.....I can twist it to suit my student needs.....we can do a joint poem.
The images and tapestry are amazing. Beautiful. 👍
Just wanted to add an interesting article since they mentioned the Japanese internment camps earlier. Here's an article on Bob Fletcher, a white Sacramento farmer who helped the Japanese American families and there farms during 1942 through 1945 when the Japanese internment camps were created (executive order 9066) https://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-xpm-2013-jun-03-la-me-bob-fletcher-20130604-story.htmltid=a_classic-iphone&no_nav=true
Unfortunately, I must leave -- this was powerful, unsettling, and profound. Thanks to all the presenters for their hard work and commitment.
This was both an intellectually stimulating and emotionally moving presentation. Thank you, all!
Thank you to our Anti-racism History & Contexts, and Arts & Expression workgroups for creating such grounded perspective and beautiful expression of this work. We encourage all to join our LAVC anti-racism efforts.

Thank you Sean! This is what we are hoping for... input from the LAVC community.
