February 10: National Lawyers Guild, APALSA, ACS and LSRJ to commemorate Korematsu Day
On Tuesday, February 10, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in room C20, NLG, APALSA, ACS and LSRJ will hold a screening of the documentary "Of Civil Rights and Wrongs" about Japanese internment camps during WWII. The movie will be followed by reflections by a group of panelists, including a former internee of the Japanese-American internment camps.
The event is in honor of Fred Korematsu Day. In 1942, at the age of 23, Korematsu refused to go to the government’s incarceration camps for Japanese-Americans. After he was arrested and convicted of defying the government’s order, he appealed his case all the way to the Supreme Court. In 1944, the Supreme Court ruled against him, arguing that the incarceration was justified due to military necessity.
Panelists will discuss how the struggle against Japanese-American Internment Camps connect to the current civil rights struggles. Food will be served.
