SAN DIEGO FILM SCREENING–Join us for a film screening of Of Civil Wrongs and Rights: The Fred Korematsu Story. In 1942, Fred Korematsu refused to show up to the incarceration camps. Over the next 40 years, he took his case to the highest courts in the land, seeking an acknowledgment from the government of what he and thousands of other Japanese Americans knew: that their constitutional rights were violated the moment they were rounded up. Preceded by Letters from Camp, a recording of Muslim American youth reading letters written by Japanese Americans in the incarceration camps.
