Author, documentarian, and journalist Frank Abe traces the resistance to the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during WWII and its intersection with John Okada, author of the classic novel No-No Boy, who trained at the Military Intelligence Service Language School at Fort Snelling.

Abe is co-author of a new graphic novel on Japanese-American resistance to wartime incarceration, We Hereby Refuse, which has just been named a Finalist in Creative Nonfiction for the Washington State Book Awards. He is co-editor of John Okada: The Life & Rediscovered Work of the Author of No-No Boy, winner of an American Book Award, and writer/director of a PBS film on the largest organized resistance to incarceration, Conscience and the Constitution.
