Teachers need your help to advance racial equity, social justice, and human rights.
The Korematsu Institute develops and distributes curriculum about Fred Korematsu’s story, the WWII Japanese American incarceration, Asian American history, and current civil rights issues.  Educators in all 50 states and a number of overseas countries have requested Curriculum Kit materials from the Institute.  Each kit has historical information, photos, and supplemental materials in order to teach the lessons of history and bring relevancy to the challenging issues of today.  The Korematsu Institute also supports teachers with teacher development workshops and conferences through many organizations such as the social studies/history state councils and the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS).

Each Curriculum Kit includes the following:

• DVD of four videos, including the 24-minute version of the 2-time Emmy Award-winning documentary, Of Civil Wrongs and Rights: The Fred Korematsu Story, with English and Japanese subtitles
• Graphic novel book, Fred Korematsu: All American Hero
• Poster, “Asian American and Pacific Islander Civil Rights Heroes”
