George Takei is known throughout the world as Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the starship Enterprise in the original Star Trek television series. We also know him as the voice in The Future is Here—How Sci-fi Becomes Reality, a multimedia experience filmed exclusively for The Children’s Museum. But his story goes where few stories have gone before.
George Takei will be at The Children’s Museum Aug. 25 to share his new book, They Called Us Enemy, a graphic novel memoir revisiting his haunting childhood in American internment camps as one of 120,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during World War II. Takei has dedicated his life to fighting for social justice and protecting future generations by sharing stories of his own family’s internment.
