The First Battle: The Battle for Equality in War-Time Hawaii

events/2007-11-10_TheFirstBattle.jpg

by Tom Coffman
With war fears rising, a Council for Inter-racial Unity was organized in Honolulu in 1939 in support of Hawai`i's large Japanese ancestry community. When 120,000 people were incarcerated, a behind-the-scenes battle for justice and equality--reaching as far as the White House--set Hawai`i on a different course. Conversation with filmmaker Tom Coffman and Dr. Richard Kosaki follows screening.

Presented in collaboration with the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy and Dr. Lane Hirabayashi, George & Sakaye Aratani Professor of the Japanese American Internment, Redress and Community, Asian American Studies, UCLA.
