Representation Matters:

Whoopi Goldberg on Uhura Nichelle Nichols: Well, When I was 9 years old, Star Trek came on. I looked at it and I went screaming through the house, "COME HERE, MUM, EVERYBODY, COME QUICK, COME QUICK, There's a black lady on the TV and she ain't no maid!" I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be.
