George Takei may be best known for his role in Star Trek, but his legacy extends far beyond the screen. In addition to his activism for LBGTQ rights, Takei is the author of five books. His newest, "They Called Us Enemy," is a graphic memoir that recounts Takei's experience of being forced into a Japanese American internment camp with his family at age 4. Takei joins us in studio.
