The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance and SMU Embrey Human Rights Program will present George Takei in the Upstander Speaker Series. Born in Los Angeles to Japanese-American parents, Takei speaks openly about his childhood experiences during World War II when he and his family were forced to relocate to internment camps in Arkansas and northern California.

Breaking through racial barriers, Takei later found success as an actor and reached peak science-fiction fandom for his iconic role as Lieutenant Sulu in the Star Trek television series and movies. He continues to act, on stage and screen, and advocates for LGBTQ rights.
