Star Trek’s Lieutenant Uhura, Nichelle Nichols, recruits for NASA. Watch Video on @lisafordblog

Rest in Paradise to the beautiful Nichelle Nichols who opened the doors for so many in film and television.

NASA responded to Nichols’ death yesterday with the following tweet:

We celebrate the life of Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek actor, trailblazer, and role model, who symbolized to so many what was possible. She partnered with us to recruit some of the first women and minority astronauts, and inspired generations to reach for the stars.

After Star Trek: The Original Series was cancelled, Nichelle Nichols, aka Lieutenant Uhura, volunteered her time to help NASA recruit women and minorities to join the space agency. The 1977 video below is from that era. – boingboing
