Fred Korematsu Day January 30
HSU will observe the annual Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution with a documentary film OF CIVIL WRONGS & RIGHTS. The screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion of the history of Japanese American World War II internment camps by Prof. Christina Accomando on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 5pm in Library's Fishbowl.
The public is invited. Fred Korematsu was an average 23-year-old California native working as a shipyard welder. But when he refused to obey Executive Order 9066, which sent 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry into internment campus, he became something extraordinary -- a civil rights champion. This film follows Korematsu's story from the moment he first resisted confinement to the hard-won victory he finally achieved 39 years later, with the help of a new generation of Japanese-American activists seeking vindication and the assurance that such a terrible injustice would never occur again. This observance marks the state of California's decision in 2010 to designate January 30 as the annual anniversary honoring Korematsu for his lifelong fight for civil rights. In the years before Korematsu's death in 2005, he served on the Constitution Project's bipartisan Liberty and Security Committee. The project is a think tank that advocates rule of law and criminal justice programs.
