Here’s a neat little audio bite... and I’m not even a big “Star Trek” guy.
Back in the ’90s, for William Shatner’s “Star Trek Memories” documentary project, Nichelle Nichols talked about how the Rev. Martin Luther King convinced her to stay with the show when she intended to leave.
Click here to listen to about 6 minutes of Ms. Nichols’ recollections, including the behind-the-scenes story of American television’s first interracial kiss. (Lt. Uhura locked lips with Capt. Kirk in the 1968 episode “Plato’s Stepchildren.”)
