The keynote speaker for this year’s International Week, George Takei, was interred in a Japanese internment camp during World War II. This experience became a touchstone for his life and work. Takei rose to preeminence in the television series Star Trek and its first six feature films. However, that only scratches the surface of his storied career as an actor, author, and social media pioneer. Come hear him speak about his experience as an internally displace person during World War II, his life as an actor, and the work for which he is now arguably best known, his social media presence.
