On Sunday, August 4, 2013, actor George Takei of Star Trek fame, appeared on CBS News’ Sunday Morning, hosted by Charles Osgood.

Takei, 76, told CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller about his family being incarcerated at Rohwer in Arkansas, and later, at the Tule Lake Segregation Center in Northern California.

Rohwer and Tule Lake were two of the ten American concentration camps where over 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry, were unjustly incarcerated during World War II.

You can watch Takei’s segment on CBS News’ Sunday Morning below (sorry, CBS does not have an iOS-compatible embed player, so those of you with iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches are out of luck).
