ACS Oklahoma: "And Then They Came For Us" Screening and Discussion
Join the ACS Oklahoma Lawyer Chapter and the University of Oklahoma College of Law’s chapters of the American Constitution Society, the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association, and the Native American Law Student Association for a screening and discussion of And Then They Came For Us. This award-winning film brings history into the present, retelling the difficult story of Japanese-American internment during World War II and following Japanese-American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban.
Following the screening, Karen Korematsu, the daughter of Fred Korematsu, and Don Tamaki, Mr. Korematsu’s attorney, will offer remarks on the film and the landmark Supreme Court decision in Korematsu v. United States (1944). Attendees will then have the opportunity to engage in a discussion about the themes of the film and the legacy of Japanese-American internment.
