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 the short Letters from Camp, with young Muslim Americans reading letters written by Japanese Americans in the incarceration camps) Learn More
