Where No Story Has Gone Before: An Evening with George Takei

George Takei — author of the 2023 K-State First Book "They Called Us Enemy" — will give a lecture at Kansas State University. The event is free and open to K-State students, faculty and staff. Tickets will be required.

They Called Us Enemy" is an illustrated memoir that Takei co-wrote with Justin Eisinger, Steven Scott and artist Harmony Becker. The story provides a window into the Japanese-American internment camps of World War II through the eyes of Takei and his family. It offers Takei's firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, his mother's hard choices, his father's faith in democracy and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future. 

Takei is a social justice activist, social media superstar, Grammy-nominated recording artist, New York Times bestselling author and pioneering actor. He has appeared in more than 40 feature films and hundreds of television roles, most famously as Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek.
