MESSAGE:

Nichelle Nichols presence on the bridge of the Enterprise as Nyota Uhura, a black woman, was riveting. It truly gave us a vision of a world in the future where equality among race and gender existed, and what it might look like. She was portrayed as a capable bridge officer that assumed control of the helm, navigation, science stations at need! Her contributions to NASA cannot be overstated, supporting ethnic and women astronauts in the program. She was my hero. I will never forget her!
