Listen to WTOP this Saturday and Sunday morning during the 8am hour for the WTOP Mystery Newsmaker Contest. We’ll play the voice of someone you’ve heard in the news this week on WTOP.
Be the first caller at 855-885-1035 to correctly identify the mystery newsmaker and win tickets to Arena Stage’s performance of Hold These Truths, an inspirational true story.
A performance the Washington Post calls “A brilliant portrayal of a genuine hero,” and relevant to our times, Hold These Truths showcases the true story of Gordon Hirabayashi, the American son of Japanese immigrants who defied an unjust court order to uphold the values on which America was founded.
Still reeling from the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, and driven by fear and prejudice, America placed its own citizens of Japanese ancestry in internment camps. Filled with hope and buoyed by unquenchable patriotism, Hirabayashi’s unflinching defiance will leave you cheering the strength of the individual and his dedication to his own unalienable rights.
