The documentary, which highlights the legal and political circumstances that led to the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II, will precede a discussion, featuring Don Tamaki, one of Fred Korematsu’s attorneys who overturned his conviction, and Jeffrey Kahn on the limits of executive power and the lessons we can learn from Japanese-American internment.
