    "bioghist": "Frank Abe grew up in Cleveland and Northern California and moved to Seattle at age 25 in 1976. A graduate from the University of California, Santa Cruz in theater directing, he was an original member of Frank Chin’s Asian American Theater Workshop in San Francisco as a director and actor, with a featured role in the film adaptation of Farewell to Manzanar. In Seattle, he helped Chin organize the first Day of Remembrance in 1978 to commemorate the forced removal of Japanese Americans to incarceration camps in WWII. Abe worked for fourteen years as a news reporter for KIRO Newsradio in Seattle and subsequently as director of communications for two King County executives and the Metropolitan King County Council.\r\n\r\nIn the 1980s, Chin introduced him to Frank Emi and James Omura and they began work on a documentary on the resistance to incarceration by Japanese Americans during WWII. Abe, Chin, and videographer Phil Sturholm began interviewing resisters in Los Angeles and Seattle. The project received a $100,000 grant from the Civil Liberties Public Education Fund, the largest grant awarded to an individual; further funds from the Independent Television Service/Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Motoda Foundation, Anheuser-Busch Companies, Michi and Walter Weglyn, and Brooks and Sumi Iwakiri helped complete the film. Subsequent grants from the California and Washington state Civil Liberties Public Education Programs funded educational programs and the project website,, which was launched in 1999.\r\n\r\nConscience and the Constitution had its world premiere on May 23, 2000, as part of VC FilmFest 2000 in Los Angeles, and aired nationwide on PBS on November 30, 2000.",
