An Evening with George Takei

When: Mon., Feb. 16, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Butler’s Diversity Lecture series opens with a visit from 2012’s “most influential person on Facebook,” according to Mashable.com. We’re not vouching for the validity of the study, but it's clear that Takei vaulted back into the public consciousness right around the time he publicly came out — not that he hadn’t been a prolific advocate for social justice before that, in part by reminding Americans of our shameful history of interning Japanese Americans during World War II (including Takei, who lived in camps from ages 4 to 8).
