November 27, 2012 | CUNY Lecture Series

Jeanne Sakata was so moved by the documentary “A Personal Matter,” about the life of the civil rights icon Gordon Hirabayashi, she wrote her first play, “Hold These Truths,” about him. “This wasn’t just a story for Japanese-Americans, this was a story for all Americans to hear and be inspired by,” said Sakata, at an event sponsored by the CUNY Asian American/Asian Research Institute. Hirabayashi, who as a college student was known for his legal battles against the U.S. government for the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, posthumously, in the spring of 2012.
