Of Civil Wrongs And Rights: The Fred Korematsu Story Documentary Film

  • JACINTO CITY BRANCH LIBRARY 921 AKRON OKLAHOMA CITY USA (map)

In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, join us for a documentary that chronicles the story of American civil rights hero Fred Korematsu. Fred Korematsu was probably never more American than when he resisted, and then challenged in court, the forced internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Korematsu lost his landmark Supreme Court case in 1944, but never his indignation and resolve. Of Civil Wrongs and Rights is the untold history of the 40-year legal fight to vindicate Korematsu - one that finally turned a civil injustice into a civil rights victory.
