Fred Korematsu challenged the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans when few others did. A new children's book, Fred Korematsu Speaks Up, explores this civil rights hero's life and its relevance today. Join authors Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi, illustrator Yutaka Houlette, and Director of the Korematsu Institute and Fred's daughter Karen Korematsu, to learn about Fred's lifelong fight for justice. This event is for children, families, teachers, librarians, and anyone who wants to join. We'll have activities for kids and short presentations by the authors, the illustrator, and Karen Korematsu. Light food and drinks, plus the sale of the books.
Co-sponsored by: Heyday, Friends of Topaz, J-SEI, and the Korematsu Institute
