They Called Us Enemy: A Graphic Memoir

Cartoon Art Museum

They Called Us Enemy features artist Harmony Becker's artwork from the acclaimed graphic memoir written by actor, author, and activist George Takei in which Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of 120,000 Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during World War II. The exhibition includes an inside look at Becker's creative process, including excerpts from her reference library and never before seen preparatory illustrations.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about They Called Us Enemy: A Graphic Memoir :

Actor, author, and activist George Takei, of Star Trek fame, and artist Harmony Becker have created an astonishing, moving memoir of Takei’s childhood experiences as one 120,000 Americans to relocate to concentration camps during the Japanese-American Internment coinciding with WWII. The exhibition considers Becker’s process, including preparatory drawings.
