(Film Screening Friday, February 21, 5:30 p.m. Peter’s Education Center Auditorium west of Save-Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building)
February 21: Of Civil Rights & Wrongs: The Fred Korematsu Story (2000)
& a Flicker in Eternity (2012)
Discussants: Eric Paul Fournier (Director) & Ken 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. The film documents the 40-year legal fight to vindicate Korematsu- one that finally turned a civil injustice into a civil rights victory. 60 minutes
