Thanks to the Black Tribbles for putting me up on this. Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura on the original Star Trek, gave a speech and impromptu song at the Los Angeles landing ceremony. See previous coverage of the trek from Floria to Los Angeles in previous posts here and here.
Ms. Nichols broke ground as one of the first black women featured in a major television series not portraying a servant. She's a very important part of American history, and I'm happy to see that recognized on a large scale. Check out the video of her singing below.
