Gordon Hirabayashi is an unsung hero for the Asian American community. Many of you may not have heard of him, but he was fighting for Asian American civil rights since 1942. When WWII was being waged, and Japanese Americans were forced, by Executive Order 9066, to abide by a military curfew, he defied the racist order and then turned himself in to the FBI. He was later convicted in the US Supreme Court and appealed the ruling, but lost again.

Hirabayashi would be 97 next week on April 23, but unfortunately passed on January 2, 2012.
