Why Is Lane Ryo Hirabayashi Influential?

(Suggest an Edit or Addition)

According to Wikipedia, Lane Ryo Hirabayashi, was an American historian who focused on the World War II internment of Japanese Americans. He recommended to use the term incarceration instead of internment. "He was at the forefront of scholars calling for the use of more precise terminology regarding the forced uprooting and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, and for avoiding government euphemisms such as “evacuation” and “relocation.” He also argued that “comparative research relating this history to the internment of Middle Eastern and Muslim detainees, and the incarceration of militant activists of color and prisoners of conscience, is imperative.” Hirabayashi was an early member of The National Coalition for Redress/Reparations , an organization that sought to right historical wrongs by returning money and land taken through incarceration during the war.
