Niki Interviews Star Trek Legend Nichelle Nichols

Nichelle Nichols, known best for role as Lt. Uhura in the original Star Trek series in 1966, is an icon whose legacy continues to grow each day. While Nichols has broken barriers in the acting world, she has also been hard at work on a new project that touches on love, family, race, and the goodness within us all. I got the chance to sit down with Nichelle Nichols at Wondercon 2018 to talk about family, Star Trek, breaking boundaries for women and minorities in film, and her new project, “Noah’s Room”.
