George Takei on CBS

George Takei talks with CBS Sunday Morning on living in American "relocation camps" during WWII. I don't see a video accompanying, but there are comments from George in the article and some of his family pictures.

EDIT: See Mysterion's post below for video link.

Re: George Takei on CBS

Thank you for sharing. The wealth of pictures of his childhood were great. Although I am sorry I missed the TV interview.

Has anyone read his autobiography. I wonder how it is. I know he probably goes more in depth into his childhood in the interment camps which I have an interest in.

Thanks for adding that, Mysterion. My eyesight is very bad, so I figured I might have been missing a link.

I read it when it was first published. It was well-written, with a lot of interesting info.
