Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties

Kate Buchanan Room
Please join us for this historical day honoring the late Fred Korematsu, a Japanese American who fought for civil rights during World War II.

In 1942, Fred Korematsu was arrested for refusing to go to a WWII incarceration camp for Japanese-Americans. He appealed his case all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled against him. The court said the incarceration was justified due to military necessity. Forty years later, the discovery of new evidence allowed Korematsu to re-open his case with pro-bono lawyers. In 1983, a federal court in San Francisco overturned Korematsu's conviction. It was a pivotal moment in civil rights history.

In 1998, Korematsu received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Bill Clinton, the nation’s highest civilian award. Mr. Korematsu passed away in 2005 at the age of 86.

In 2010, California passed a bill marking every January 30 as Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties. It is the first day in U.S. history named after an Asian American.

Tommy Emmanuel

Van Duzer Theater
Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia's most respected musicians, and one of the world’s most impressive guitar players. His intricate “finger style” technique is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than relying on a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays it all—and more—on one guitar simultaneously. Moving effortlessly from folk to rock, jazz, country, and blues with remarkable flair and unforgettable showmanship, Tommy Emmanuel “is unquestionably one of the most gifted artists of our time.”—Acoustic Guitar
