Kenneth Figenscher




To Nichelle,
It makes me very happy to know you are joining the Roddenberrys & James Doohan (among others) on your trip into the final frontier. I wish I could have broken down the social barriers you did to warrant such a trip. In a time of cultural upheaval & evolution you took Dr. Kings advice and became a beacon for young African-American women (& men too). We will miss your smiling face in the world of the living. But your art will prevail & lead us into a better future. RIP Nichelle. Ken
