62] – The Hiroshima-Nagasaki Commemoration Committee is hosting its latest FILM & SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS DVD SERIES. The theme is Seeking the Truth Through Documentaries. The second film in the series is OF CIVIL WRONGS & RIGHTS: The Fred Korematsu Story [
The documentary tells the story of a Japanese American who 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. This documentary 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. The filmmaker, Eric Paul Fournier, did a film with ramifications for the treatment of “the enemy” after 9/11.
Doors open at 7 PM, and the DVD starts at 7:30 PM. There is no charge, and refreshments will be available. A discussion will follow
