Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
Minami led the legal team that reopened Korematsu v. United States, which resulted in a federal district court overturning the conviction of a Japanese-American who defied the World War II internment order. He is a partner at Minami Tamaki in San Francisco.
Minami calls this seminal Ellison classic, which traces a black man’s devastating sense of isolation from white America, an important source for “understanding of what people of color feel and experience, learning empathy in a diverse world.”
