Star Trek was the only show Mom and Dad would allow us to stay up late and watch as kids in the 60s. At the time, I thought nothing of your role. I mean, why wouldn’t a black or a woman be on the show? I was just a naive child and didn’t understand the significance. Thank goodness you continued on the show. Many years later my children were introduced to Star Trek and then my grandson. Thank you, Nichelle, you added style and grace to a future-changing show.
