Though perhaps best known for his former role in Star Trek and his current social media stardom, Takei is also intimately familiar with the theme of this international week. During WW2, he and his family were forced out of their home to be interred in a Japanese internment camp. At An Evening with George Takei, he will speak of the racial discrimination he faced at that time, as well as his experience as a gay Asian man throughout his career as an actor.
