WHO/WHAT: Author Stan Yogi will discuss and sign copies of “Fred Korematsu Speaks Up,” which he co-authored with Laura Atkins. Fred Korematsu refused to comply with the World War II internment order and was sent to prison. His decision formed the foundation of the person he would become: a fighter for civil liberties. “Fred Korematsu Speaks Up” encourages readers of all ages to speak up for justice, as Korematsu did.
Stan Yogi also co-authored “Wherever There’s a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers, Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California” and managed the development programs at the ACLU of Northern California for 14 years.
WHEN/WHERE: Thursday, July 13, at 11:30 a.m. at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i Gallery.
