Great Asian Americans - Daniel Inouye

Description

This educational poster features an original illustration of former U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, as well as substantial biographical text.

Daniel Inouye was born in 1924 in Hawaii to Japanese-American parents. Like many Japanese-Americans, he experienced discrimination especially during World War Two. But that did not stop him from signing up with the all Japanese-American 442nd infantry. After the war he went to law school and became interested in politics. In 1959, when Hawaii became a state, he became its first U.S. representative, and the first Japanese-American to serve in Congress. In 1962, he became a senator and remained there until his death in 2012.

This poster is a great way to introduce students to a great and dedicated American who overcame discrimination to become one of the most powerful figures in government.
