Stunning! A brilliant portrayal of a genuine hero.
A FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
By Jeanne Sakata
An unsung American hero, Gordon Hirabayashi, fought passionately for the Constitution against an unexpected adversary: his own country. During World War II, he refused to report to a
relocation camp with thousands of families of Japanese descent, launching a 50-year journey from college to courtroom and eventually to a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
An inspiring true story of conscience amidst conflict, it is a one-man portrait of American character at its best.

IMPORTANT: The parking lot at the Lucie Stern Community Center is under construction until January 2020, so we recommend giving yourself an additional half hour to find a spot in the streets of the surrounding neighborhood. There is a small lot open behind the theatre off of Hopkins Ave, but it only contains 27 spaces. For patrons with mobility issues, we recommend utilizing the drop-off area at the front of the Lucie Stern Community Center, at the corner of Middlefield Rd and Melville Ave.
