Join us for a special film screening and discussion
Fred Korematsu Day
Thursday, January 30th, 11:45am-1pm
DePaul College of Law, 25 E. Jackson Blvd, Room 903
Fred Korematsu is the Japanese-American man who would not consent to being interned after President Roosevelt ordered that all Japanese-Americans be interned as World War II began. He is also the individual responsible for the landmark Korematsu v. United States case.
Join us for a screening of the brief film “Of Civil Rights and Wrongs” about Korematsu’s life and a discussion about the racial profiling he endured then and the racial profiling too often experienced by people of color today.
