Glens Falls High School

Event Details

Join us for an evening with George Takei at the Charles R. Wood Theater. The evening will consist of a 45-minute presentation from Mr. Takei and a 30-minute question and answer session. During the presentation, Takei will share the story of his family’s forced internment as Japanese Americans during WWII – a seemingly forgotten part of American history. He will also take the audience through his rise to celebrity as a Sci-fi icon, his remarkable journey as a social media mega-power, and his passionate fight for LGBTQ rights and marriage equality in America. 

George 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. Takei has served as the spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign’s Coming Out Project and was Cultural Affairs Chairman of the Japanese American Citizens League. He is also chairman emeritus and a trustee of the Japanese American National Museum.
