At South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor):

Filmmaker, Frank Abe, will show his film “Conscience and the Constitution” and speak about Japanese American Day of Remembrance.

In World War II, a handful of young Americans refused to be drafted from an American concentration camp.

They were ready to fight for their country, but not before the government restored their rights as U.S. citizens and released their families from camp. It was a classic example of civil disobedience — but the government prosecuted them as criminals and Japanese American leaders and veterans ostracized them as traitors.

CONSCIENCE AND THE CONSTITUTION delves into the heart of the Japanese American conscience and a controversy that continues today. Experience the choice faced by any group when confronted by mass injustice — whether to comply or to resist.

    Thanks for sharing. Members of the community are welcome too. Admission is free. I’ll have a few words to say to set up the story and introduce the film, with a full Q and A discussion afterward. Thanks to Teri Nakashima for inviting us to screen.
