Lorraine K. Bannai, attorney, author and professor of law tells a very personal story of Fred Korematsu; a simple man courageous enough to challenge criminal conviction and the removal and incarceration of 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry during WWII. Through her publications and work with the Korematsu Center, she continues his legacy and advocates for victims of civil rights violations while reminding us that racial profiling is still a national problem.
