When Nichelle was cast by Gene Roddenberry to create Chief Communications Officer Lt. Uhura, fourth in command of the Starship Enterprise, in his legendary TV series Star Trek — in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King — “The first non-stereotypical role portrayed by a black woman in television history.” It was Dr. King who convinced Nichelle to stay on Star Trek when she got an offer to come sing on Broadway, calling her role a vital role model for minorities across America and around the world.

Many of her new recruits were women or members of racial and ethnic minorities, including Guion Bluford (the first African-American astronaut), Sally Ride (the first female American astronaut), and Mae Jamison (the first female African-American astronaut).
