    This is to Ms. Nichelle Nicoles,
    I ,a Black woman, was born in 1950 in St. Paul, Minnesota. I was so proud to see you on Star Trek from 1966 – 1968 and then I don’t know how many times I saw the reruns. I am so glad that you stayed on the show. It was a ray of hope that African American women could rise and excel in things beyond what was the norm for us in the late 60’s. You are truly an inspiration to all women and you look fantastic!

    This is the first time I’ve seen this website and it really is wonderful. Love the article on Nichelle, of course! I look forward to reading more of your notes…

    • Hi Debbie,

      It’s really wonderful to hear from someone who knew this remarkable woman personally. As you can see there are quite a few comments about the post, particularly the one by Barbara Leone Brown which mentions how much of an inspiration Nichelle has been and continues to be for many of us–especially women of color. We are indebted to the late Martin Luther King who encouraged her to stay on Star Trek. She made it possible for African American women to rise above expectations.

      We all wish Nichelle the best and to say “Thank you”.
