APABA-DC's presentation of the Fred Korematsu v. United States case - "A Man of Quiet Bravery" was a success last night!  Esteemed judges and leaders of our the legal and civil rights communities did an outstanding job re-enacting the case at the beautiful ceremonial courtroom of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  At the reception following the re-enactment, Ms. Karen Korematsu, Fred's daughter and Executive Director of the Korematsu Institute, provided moving remarks.  APABA-DC is proud to have had the opportunity to highlight this important case that should always be remembered and that serves as a reminder to us all of the mistakes of our history that should never be repeated.
