Law professor Lorraine Bannai talks about her book, Enduring Conviction: Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice, in which she discusses her role in the overturning of the landmark Supreme Court Case in 1983 and its effect on civil rights today. Fred Korematsu was an American-born son of Japanese immigrants. He challenged the U.S. government’s forced incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, and in 1944 the Supreme Court ruled his detainment constitutional. Mr. Korematsu’s conviction was eventually overturned in 1983 after lawyers reopened the case. close
