The actor, activist and social-media genius will discuss his experiences during World War II, when as a child he was interred in a government camp along with his family as part of the forcible locations of Americans of Japanese descent.

Takei will also speak about his experiences as a gay Asian man throughout his acting career.

Takei, 80, first gained fame as Sulu on the original Star Trek TV series and in subsequent films. He's now equally well known as an activist for social justice, LGBTQ rights and marriage equality.

The event is part of the University of Pittsburgh's International Week.

An Evening With George Takei takes place at 7 p.m. at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall, 4141 Fifth Ave., in Oakland.

Tickets are $30-40 or $10 for students and are available here.
