Google Honors Fred Korematsu’s Birthday

January 30th, 2017

I don’t know if this Doodle was pre-planned, but the timing is impeccable.

This is a photograph of Korematsu wearing the Congressional Medal of Freedom, given to him by President Clinton in 1998. Also, in the background are representations of the barracks at the detention camp.

For my recent lecture on Korematu v. United States, and the other Japanese detention cases, see here.
