The First Battle: The Battle for Equality in War-Time Hawaii. Tom Coffman. Journalist producer, Tom Coffman presents comparisons on the treatment of Japanese Americans in Hawaii and the mainland US in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor. 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. A behind-the-scenes battle for justice and equality- reaching as far as the White House- set Hawaii on a different course (2007, 60 minutes).
