Details

Pan Asian Lawyers of San Diego proudly presents the reenactment of the trial of the Vietnamese Fishermen vs. The Ku Klux Klan. When Vietnamese refugees living and working in the Gulf Coast in the late 1970s were terrorized and attacked by the KKK, they sought the help of the American justice system to stop the KKK’s campaign of violence against them. The case shed light on the resurgence of the white supremacist movement and extremist violence in the United States, a country then-recovering from the wounds of the Vietnam War. It has provided a somber but poignant historical commentary on the sensitive issue of racial tensions and extremism that still run deeply in the foundation of American legal history.

Check-in will begin at 5:00 p.m, and the program will begin at 5:30 pm, followed by a discussion mixer with food and beverages. All attendees MUST pre-register due to courthouse security protocols. No walk-ins will be accepted. Registration closes on 5-29-19 at 5:00 pm.

Please note, The Reenactment of Vietnamese Fishermen vs. The Ku Klux Klan is prepared from actual trial transcripts and records. As a result, certain portions of the program may contain profanity or offensive language in order to preserve historical accuracy.
