Purchase the First Battle DVD
With war fears rising, a Council for Inter-racial Unity organized in Honolulu in 1939 in support of Hawaii's large Japanese-ancestry community. On December 7,1941, they sprang into action. Where 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry were relocated from the West Coast and interned, this behind-the-scenes battle for justice and equality – reaching as far as the White House – set Hawaii on a different course.
The First Battle portrays people working together under extreme stress against great odds.
