Kristaminique McDonald




I was not a small child when I stumbled on Star Trek The Original Series. I was a young, aspiring filmmaker watching all the scifi I could get my hands on. Nichelle Nichols was a shock to find on the show, but it was later learning the story of her encounter with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that impressed upon me the value of a Black girl’s voice on screen. I cannot express the value of my fairly small experience of this woman’s life. Thank You, Nichelle Nichols. Rest Well, you earned it.
