Episode 20 - The Home of the Brave

May 12, 12:55 PM
Today's episode is the conclusion of the Fred Korematsu story. After losing his Supreme Court case in 1944, Fred went into a life of obscurity...until a conversation with a young girl in 1967 started Fred back on the journey to right the wrongs bestowed against him, and Japanese American people...and to stop America from making the same mistakes again.
