An Evening with George Takei at BAM

Mon, May 1, 2017

BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
30 Lafayette Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11217


Actor and social justice activist George Takei—in conversation with Jay Kuo—brings his uncanny eloquence and signature wit to BAM. In this very special evening, he shares the story of his Japanese-American family’s forced internment during World War II, a seemingly forgotten part of American history. He also takes audiences through his rise to celebrity as a sci-fi icon, his remarkable journey as social media mega power, and his passionate fight for LGBTQ rights and marriage equality in America—empowering others to beat the odds and make a difference.
