A little searching turned up that the street names were instituted in 1988 to honor two of the most vocal and courageous Americans (Japanese or otherwise) against the internment: Fred Korematsu and Gordon Hirabayashi (who just passed away on January 2, 2012).
Circle January 30 on your calendar, as it's the Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution.
Does a more politicized Japanese American cross-street exist? Let us know.
