Activity 1 – Strikes and Fouls

What strikes and fouls did the Nikkei (people of Japanese descent) community experience in Canada while the Asahis played?

Editorial cartoons can be a powerful way to express an opinion about a particular subject.

To understand the historical context for the Asahi story and develop an opinion about racism in that era, students will create an editorial cartoon to comment on the life of Nikkei in Canada from 1914 to 1941.
