The JOY of Art
The Forbidden Book is a compilation of political cartoons used by the United States during the height of western colonization in parts of Asia, the Pacific Islands, Latin America, and Central America. This exhibit focuses on the propaganda the U.S. government used to justify its occupation of the Philippines. The U.S. portrayed the Pilipin@s as savages, unclean, and uneducated while the the U.S., often taking the form of Uncle Sam, was seen as "fixing" them by bringing western culture to their land.

The exhibit will be on display for the month of October to honor Pilipin@-American Heritage/History Month. 
What stories do you have to tell? Visit our Tumblr and be sure to attach #ccctb20 to any of your social media posts (Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). Get excited and be a part of our project of celebrating 20 years in the making of CCC love and community. For more information please contact Edwina Welch at ewelch@ucsd.edu.
