They Called Us Enemy

Best known for his groundbreaking role as Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek, George Takei started off as a young Japanese-American boy living on the west coast during WWII. The events following Pearl Harbor forever changed his life as he and his family were incarcerated under FDR’s Executive Order 9066. This graphic novel creates a new eye-opening experience for those unfamiliar with the wrongful actions of the American government during this trying time in our nation’s history. While They Called Us Enemy is a quick read, it is full of heart-wrenching details of how his parents navigated everything from losing their home and business, to the “Loyalty Questionnaire,” and life post-incarceration that you won’t want to miss.
