Launch of Prisoner in My Homeland set for September 14th
We’re thrilled to announce that Mission US: Prisoner in My Homeland will be launching on Monday, September 14, 2020!
In Prisoner in My Homeland, students step into the role of Henry Tanaka, a 16-year-old Japanese American boy whose family is forced to leave their home on Bainbridge Island, Washington, for a prison camp in Manzanar, California during World War II. Players must make decisions that reflect broader strategies of survival and resistance: will they help their community, focus on family, support the war effort, resist injustice? Like all the games in the critically-acclaimed Mission US series, Prisoner in My Homeland is designed to increase young people’s knowledge and understanding of our nation’s past by immersing them in a critical moment in U.S. history.
