According to Mills, the U.S. educational system robs people of this understanding by separating the study of history from deepening insight into their lives – i.e., in most classrooms, the study of "history" is isolated from each student’s autobiography.
Professor Ichioka adopted Mills’ ideas to uncover the "buried past" for Asian Americans and to create a new approach showing the ways that Asian immigrants not only were shaped by historical forces but also shaped America’s history.
Moreover, Professor Ichioka defined as integral to his role as a scholar his responsibilities as an educator to share his knowledge with others, especially in off-campus communities, and as an activist to fight for peace, equality, and justice.
