After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attacks…Fred Korematsu challenged President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066 that authorized the U.S. military to forcibly remove more than 120,000 people, mostly of Japanese descent, from their homes and into incarceration camps throughout the country. Two-thirds of these people were American citizens. Mr. Korematsu went into hiding in the Oakland area, becoming a fugitive, and was arrested and convicted of violating the federal order. His case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dr. Ralph Bunche (far right) with some of his friends at Harvard University, circa 1930. Dr. Bunche (1904-1971) was born in Detroit but raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Los Angeles, where he was valedictorian and graduated summa cum laude from UCLA. He earned a master’s degree in political science from Harvard in 1932 and taught at Howard University as he earned his doctorate from Harvard. Dr. Bunche played a critical role in the founding of the United Nations even as he maintained his duties as chair of the Political Science department at Howard, a position he held from 1928 to 1950. As Undersecretary General of the UN, his successful negotiation of four armistice agreements that ended the first Arab-Israeli war in 1949 led to him being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950. He was the first African-American - and the first person of color anywhere in the world - to be awarded the prize. Photo: Los Angeles Public Library
