Nichelle Nichols is the flawless beauty who portrayed Lt. Nyota Uhura in the original Star Trek series in the 1960s. she was a Black actress who stood up against ridiculous amounts of hate and prejudice to show us a world where prejudice has been eliminated
in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, she was Black on tv and portrayed a character who was nobody’s servant, who was a complete and equal person, treated the same way by the show as her white and/or male counterparts. the character was brilliant, intuitive, creative, funny, and talented, and on many occasions Captain Kirk, Spock, and other crew members deferred to her expertise and abilities to save the day, and she always came through because she’s flawless.
she also performed the first interracial kiss on television with William Shatner, just after interracial marriage first became legal.
she inspired the first African American woman in space to become an astronaut, and she inspired Whoopie Goldberg to become an actress. many Black women and other PoC have cited Uhura and Nichelle as their reasons for reaching their dreams.
Nichelle Nichols is an inspiration and a queen and there wouldn’t be a Star Trek chair worth having if it wasn’t for her
how dare you
you are unworthy of her
