Lt. Uhura, You were such an icon for women of all colors including white ones like me. You were smart, commanded respect, and knew your importance on the Enterprise. Nichelle, I believe you must have loved the roll. I hope you realized how you gave young girls the belief that we could be anything. We could go where every man has gone and proudly do equal or better. And do it with grace and beauty. Thank you for creating a character in a show that was reachable in reality. Love to you.
