New feature on the Teaching Resistance blog with an interview about our book.

“For Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, members of the Teach Resistance community read Fred Korematsu Speaks Up by Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi. The book tells the true story of Fred Korematsu, a Japanese American who fought a legal battle against the United States when he and other Japanese Americans were unjustly interned during World War II. Teach Resistance e-mailed Laura and Stan for their thoughts on the importance of teaching stories like Fred’s to young people today and teaching resistance in general.”
