Gordon Hirbayashi RIP

Gordon Hirbayashi, a fighter, pioneer and was the last surviving trio of Japanese American Internment Camp protestors who fought the government on the Constitutional values of the internment and refusing to get imprisoned. All were overturned. The others Fred Korematsu and Minoru Yasui passed away in 05 and 96. He’s a great historical figure and this little bit of text does no justice to his life. There’s a rich history in his accomplishments. (New York Times – Gordon Hirabayashi)
