This is an audio recording of the event held at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. The program begins with a presentation by Dr. Franklin Odo, visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania. It's followed by  a sneak peak of Hold These Truths, performed by local actor Makoto Hirano, a one-man show about the real life journey of Gordon Hirabayashi, the man who famously defied forcible removal and took his case all the way to the Supreme Court... twice!  It concludes with a discussion between Dr. Odo and internment camp survivor Sumiko Kobayashi  to put the performance and historical records in context.
