In Facing the Mountain, author Daniel James Brown tells the unforgettable story of the Japanese-American men who volunteered for the US Army's 442nd Regimental Combat Team and displayed incredible courage on the brutal battlefields of Europe. Yet at the same time, their parents were put in camps and stripped of their livelihoods, and an equally brave battle was being fought in the courtroom back home. This book reveals the all too common failure of democratic ideals in a time of crisis. Peter Kiang, director of U Mass Boston's Asian American Studies Program will join us to discuss this phenomena as well as the history of Asian-American prejudice on the Eastern seaboard.
