Interview with Kiyoshi Ikeda 9/9/97

Interview with Kiyoshi Ikeda recorded on September 9, 1997 for 1946: The Great Hawaiʻi Sugar Strike. The interview focuses on the working conditions on sugar plantations (1930s-1940s); how the plantation workers felt they had little control over their lives; how anger was never shown towards the supervisors; how many families became trapped owing money to the plantation store; and how there was a language barrier between worker and supervisor.
