Taking a Stand: UNC’s Admissions Policy on Japanese Americans during World War II

November 30, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

During World War II, Japanese American citizens were incarcerated without trial. Members of the UNC community, including President Frank Porter Graham and the Franklin Street Presbyterian Church, faced fierce opposition as they sought to help college-age Japanese American students continue their education.

Students in Prof. Heidi Kim’s English 360 class spent the semester examining the historical record to build a picture of this episode in University history. On Nov. 30, they will present their findings in a free public program at Wilson Library.
