Bradford Pearson discusses his new book in conversation with KJZZ's Steve Goldstein.
ABOUT THE BOOK
The year 2020 has brought to the forefront a long-awaited discussion of the systemic racism that is prevalent in our nation’s fabric. Conversations about the lack of opportunity on many fronts, including employment, housing, medical care, and more, permeate our political landscape. In 1942, during the early days of World War II, the US government took official action against Japanese Americans that tragically exemplifies just this kind of pervasive racism. The Eagles of Heart Mountain: A True Story of Football, Incarceration, and Resistance in World War II America—an impeccably researched, deeply moving, never-before-told tale about a World War II incarceration camp in Wyoming and its extraordinary high school football team—highlights this ongoing struggle for equality.
