Glendale, California 91205
CITIZEN TANOUYE uniquely brings history to life for eight ethnically diverse Torrance, CA high school students through their research of alumnus and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Tech Sgt Ted Tanouye and the impact the war had on their city, while drawing attention to the civil rights abuses of WWII era America. Director Robert Horsting will answer questions after the screening.
During their investigation of school yearbooks, newspapers, internet sites and insightful conversations with WWII veterans, the relevance of history is brought into focus as the students express their personal observations, draw parallels to their own lives and realize the affect that this experience will have on their future.
A free lecture sponsored by the Library, Arts & Culture Dept., the Brand Associates and the Friends of the Glendale Public Library. Seating is limited. Library visitors receive 3 hours FREE parking across the street at The Market Place parking structure with validation at the loan desk.
