is supporting Technology Access Foundation and The Planetary Society

Nichelle Nichols is an American actress and singer. As Lieutenant Uhura on the legendary television series Star Trek, Nichols played, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “the first non-stereotypical role portrayed by a black woman in television history." Nichols also began volunteering her time with NASA, in a highly effective campaign to recruit minority and female personnel for the space agency. She has continued to appear in various television and film roles, and continued her charitable missions.

What a busy few weeks it’s been! Had a great trip to Culture Shift Labs last week, and met the amazing Rowland Martin.

My great friend Mae Jemison and I at Silicon Valley Comic Con today! What a beautiful presentation she gave. See you all here tomorrow!

I’m back at @SVCC this weekend for some very special programming with some of my closest friends, and to meet my Bay Area fans!
