After Pearl Harbor was bombed on <a href=\"/wiki/December_7,_1941\" title=\"December 7, 1941\">December 7, 1941</a>, the Committee for Interracial Unity and the Morale Section led by Chinese American YMCA Secretary <a href=\"/wiki/Hung_Wai_Ching\" title=\"Hung Wai Ching\">Hung Wai Ching</a> and Japanese American school principal <a href=\"/wiki/Shigeo_Yoshida\" title=\"Shigeo Yoshida\">Shigeo Yoshida</a>, worked to protect the civil liberties of the people of Japanese ancestry living in Hawai'i, which ultimately led to the decision against a mass removal of Japanese Americans from the islands. In addition to interviews with some of the key figures and archival footage and stills, <i>The First Battle</i> also recreates several key scenes with actors playing key historical figures such as Ching, Yoshida, and Hawai'i FBI head <a href=\"/wiki/Robert_Shivers\" title=\"Robert Shivers\">Robert Shivers</a>. Major funders included Central Pacific Bank, the Gerbode Foundation, the Hawaii Pacific Rim Society, and the Island Insurance Company.\n</p><p><i>The First Battle</i> premiered at the Hawaii Theatre in Honolulu on September 5, 2006, in an event organized by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i (JCCH). JCCH also organized premieres of the film on the neighbor islands. The film debuted on local television with an airing on Hawaii Public Television on December 7, 2006. An extensive website for the film includes additional photographs and documents, extended interviews, and educational materials among other things.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup>\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a href=\"/wiki/Lewis_Kawahara\" title=\"Lewis Kawahara\">Lewis Kawahara</a> and <a href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Kawahara,Lewis;Niiya,Brian</div>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2>\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3>\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a href=\"/wiki/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div>\n</div>\n<br/>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p><i>The First Battle</i> official website, <a class=\"external free\" href=\"http://www.thefirstbattle.com/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.thefirstbattle.com/</a>.\n</p><p>Burl Burlingame, \"<a class=\"external text\" href=\"http://archives.starbulletin.com/2006/12/07/features/story07.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">Isle Council Helped AJAs as War Loomed.</a>\" <i>Honolulu Star-Bulletin</i>, Dec. 7, 2006.\n</p><p>Markrich, Mike. \"'The First Battle': Extraordinary Actions by Ordinary People.\" <i>Hawaii Herald</i>, Oct. 6, 2006, 9, 15.\n</p><p>Pang, Gordon Y.K. \"<a class=\"external text\" href=\"http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2006/Sep/04/il/FP609040322.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">Internment Busters.</a>\" <i>Honolulu Advertiser</i>, Sept. 4, 2006. \n</p><p>Suzuki, Genevieve A. \"'The First Battle': Historian Tom Coffman Preparing an Addendum to a Legendary Era.\" <i>Hawaii Herald</i>, July 23, 2004, 9, 14.\n</p>\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Footnotes\">Footnotes</span></h2>\n<div class=\"reflist\" style=\"list-style-type: decimal;\">\n<ol class=\"references\">\n<li id=\"cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\"><span class=\"mw-cite-backlink\"><a href=\"#cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">↑</a></span> <span class=\"reference-text\"><i>Hawaii Herald</i>, Aug. 18, 2006, 4; Burl Burlingame, \"Isle Council Helped AJAs as War Loomed,\" <i>Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Dec. 7, 2006, accessed on April 2, 2015 at <a class=\"external free\" href=\"http://archives.starbulletin.com/2006/12/07/features/story07.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://archives.starbulletin.com/2006/12/07/features/story07.html</a>.</i></span>\n</li>\n</ol></div>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.132 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.137 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 443/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 3049/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 8422/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1734/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:2292-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20170713021149 and revision id 25829\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
