A new book about Fred Korematsu for young readers!

Fred Korematsu speaks up   by Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi.

In 1942, Fred Korematsu defied US government orders that forced all Japanese Americans from the West Coast and lead to their mass incarceration during World War II. His subsequent challenge to the Constitutionality of his forced removal became the basis of the landmark, Korematsu v. United States Supreme Court Case.

Today, with the lessons of Fred Korematsu’s life more relevant than ever, Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi will speak about their new book for youth, Fred Korematsu Speaks Up, which tells the story of Fred Korematsu and his stand against the violation of his Constitutional rights.

Laura Atkins is a children’s book author, editor, and instructor. Stan Yogi is coauthor of Wherever There’s a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers, and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California and worked as a staff member of the Northern California ACLU for many years.

Both authors are on a book tour sponsored by the ACLU of Northern California, and the appearance at JAMsj is co-sponsored by the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the ACLU.
