Negative press was nothing new for Colorado governor Ralph Carr, a rare breed of politician who held his ground against popular opinion and was ahead of the curve in championing civil rights. Serving as governor during the anti-Japanese hysteria of WWII, Carr surprised and angered legions of voters -- and faced threats of impeachment -- when he became the only political leader in the country to champion the constitutional rights of Japanese Americans and welcome them to his state. 

The Book Club meets the first Saturday, every other month, and is open to the public.

Cost: Free with admission to the museum (nonmembers, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free). 

Questions? Contact Book Club facilitator, Aggie Idemoto at aggie@jamsj.org, or call JAMsj at (408) 294-3138.
