One Ordinary Man's Extraordinary Fight for Justice

This Emmy Award winner brings to life for the first time the inspirational story of an unsung American civil rights hero, and demonstrates the power of ordinary citizens to rise up against injustice.

In 1942, Fred Korematsu was an average 23-year-old California native working as a shipyard welder. But when he refused to obey Executive Order 9006, which sent 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry into interment camps, he became something extraordinary - a civil rights champion. Award-winning director Eric Paul Fournier follows Korematsu's story from the moment he first resisted confinement to the hard-won victory he finally achieved 39 years later, with the help of a new generation of Japanese-American activists seeking vindication and the assurance that such a terrible injustice would never occur again.

Of Civil Wrongs And Rights is the striking story of an ordinary man's courageous actions, and of the legal fight for his exoneration, which became a landmark episode in the civil rights struggles of the 20th century.
