First announced last summer, They Called Us Enemy, the graphic memoir by George Takei, will make its debut in May.
“George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his captivating stage presence and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father’s – and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future.
“In a stunning graphic memoir, Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of over one hundred thousand Japanese-Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon – and America itself – in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.”
Written by Takei, Justin Eisinger, and Steven Scott, They Called Us Enemy will feature art and a cover by Harmony Becker.
The one hundred-and-ninety-two page black and white graphic memoir will cost $19.99.
