BAM presents Where No Story Has Gone Before: An Evening with George Takei on Monday, May 1, 2017, at 7:30pm.

Actor and social justice activist George Takei brings his uncanny eloquence and signature wit to BAM in a conversation with Jay Kuo.

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.
