Of Civil Wrongs And Rights
POV Season 14
Feature Film | 07/10/2001 | 60 Mins

Fred Korematsu was probably never more American than when he resisted, and then challenged in court, the forced internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Korematsu lost his landmark Supreme Court case in 1944, but never his indignation and resolve. Of Civil Wrongs and Rights is the untold history of the 40-year legal fight to vindicate Korematsu — one that finally turned a civil injustice into a civil rights victory. A National Asian-American Telecommunications Association (NAATA) Co-presentation.
