A true story of football, incarceration, and resistance in World War II America

If you’re a fan of history or football, you won’t want to miss our special online talk with author Bradford Pearson for his book, The Eagles of Heart Mountain, about the Japanese American high school football players incarcerated at the Heart Mountain, Wyoming American concentration camp during World War II. The Heart Mountain High School football team, the Eagles, went undefeated against the all-white teams that traveled from across Montana and Wyoming to play against them. Even more pressing for the players, however, were the pressures of living in the camps, and the weight of choosing between serving in the Army for a government unjustly detaining their families, or resisting the draft. Hear from the author as he recounts the special connections he made with past players and the lessons learned on injustice and the human spirit as he wrote the book.
