Asian-American Media Honored at the Capitol

Farooq Mughal, chair of the Asian American Caucus of the Democratic Party of Georgia, and one of the organizers of the event, welcomed the media representatives. In his brief note, he mentioned Fred Korematsu, the Japanese-American who became a national civil rights hero after his conviction (for refusing to go to the government’s incarceration camps for Japanese Americans during World War II) was overturned in 1983 by the California courts. The AAPI media played a concerted role in the overturning of Korematsu’s conviction, he said. “We’d like to honor AAPI media on Fred Korematsu day for promoting diversity and cultures in Georgia.”
