Actor George Takei became famous in the 1960s, playing the role of Mr. Sulu in the original Star Trek series. He then went on to a second career as a social activist and pop culture icon. By far, his most personal work is the Broadway musical, Allegiance, inspired by his childhood experience in a Japanese-American internment camp during World War II. Takei will speak about his life and activism tonight at Northern Arizona University. He spoke with KNAU’s Aaron Granillo.
