* About Minoru Yasui: On the evening of March 28, 1942, UO graduate Minoru Yasui ’37, LL.B. ’39 broke the law. He walked up and down Portland’s Third Avenue for two hours and insisted on being arrested for breaking curfew laws specifically aimed at Japanese citizens after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Yasui spent the weekend in the drunk tank. Convicted and stripped of his U.S. citizenship, he underwent months of indignity and solitary confinement before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1943 reinstated his citizenship. Through the 1970s and 1980s, Denver community leader and civil rights attorney Yasui fought for redress and apology. He died in 1986, just two years before redress legislation was passed and signed.
