ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

information from SWSHS

Professor Lorraine Bannai presents her new book, "Enduring Conviction - Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice" Friday, Mar. 3rd at Barnes & Noble/Westwood

Knowing that the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II was a fundamental denial of basic human rights, a young attorney, Lori Bannai, helped vindicate a Japanese American man who resisted F.D.R.'s Executive Order. She has now written a book about him, his wartime case, and how, decades later, he won a measure of justice for himself and the Japanese American community - Enduring Conviction: Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice (published by University of Washington Press (2015)).

Bannai combines insider knowledge of the case with extensive archival research, personal letters, and interviews with Korematsu, his family, and close friends. She uncovered the inspiring story of a humble, soft-spoken man who fought tirelessly against human rights abuses long after he was exonerated.
