Thank you, George!

July 1, 2014 

On June 13, USJBF was honored to host a lovely night of conversation with our very own George Takei, a USJBF board member. His diverse experiences from growing up in a Japanese internment camp to being a social media king and champion of equality kept us hanging on his every word. By the end of the night, we raised enough funds to support up to eight Bridging Scholars! We extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended, especially to George for staying an extra two hours to take selfies with guests and Tokyo American Center staff.

George Takei, everyone!

George takes center stage.
