WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dawn's Light: The Journey of Gordon Hirabayashi chronicles the true story of one Japanese American's enduring fight for his constitutional rights. Gordon Hirabayashi was a happy-go-lucky twenty-four-year-old college student living in Seattle when Pearl Harbor was attacked in late 1941. The government's decision to remove and imprison all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast - mostly American citizens - without due process of law - turned Gordon, a Quaker, into a crusader. Dawn's Light faithfully documents Gordon's historic decision to heed his conscience and pursue his faith in the protections of the Constitution all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
