Posts Tagged Fred T.Korematsu Day
Korematsu, who passed away in 2010, would have been 94 on Jan. 30. And the state of Hawaii is set to celebrate his birthday in style as the 3rd state to honor Korematsu with an official day.
Karen Korematsu called it her life mission to have every state proclaim an FTK day commemorating freedom, diversity and civil liberties until it’s recognized nationally.
I saw Karen on Sunday at the San Francisco celebration for her father. It was special because it brought together a diverse group of Asian American heroes.
It was like an Asian American Hall of Fame for Civil Rights. Three years after the intial FTK Day, the Korematsu Institute wisely chose to spread the love.
