January 30 is Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which allowed for the internment of Japanese-Americans. Fred Korematsu challenged that order in court all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Fred's daughter, Karen, hadn't even heard of Japanese internment -- or her father's famous involvement -- before it came up in her high school social studies class in the 1960s. Now, she's carrying on her father's message of human rights for all.
