Fred Korematsu challenged the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans when few others did. Fred Korematsu Speaks Up explores this civil rights hero’s life and its relevance today. Join authors Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi to learn about Fred’s lifelong fight for justice. They will read excerpts from the book, talk about the larger historical context, and lead a discussion about what people can do today to speak up for justice. This event is for children, families, teachers, librarians, and anyone who wants to join.
