Oppression—Speaking (and Singing) the Truth

Fascinating interview of actors (including George Takei of “Star Trek” fame) and the director of a currently playing Broadway musical depicting the tragedy and injustice of the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, and including documentary photos of the internment and George Takei’s memories of his experience of the internment as a child.

Very timely during a period of a sharp rise in highly prejudicial stereotyping of Muslim-Americans and Muslim immigrants.
