Wow! Woman of the Week – Nichelle Nicols

Nichelle Nicols

We take inspiration this week from actress Nichelle Nicols. Best known for her portrayal of Lieutenant Nyota Uhura in Star Trek. Nicols broke ground for African American representation on American television, including, the first on-screen interracial kiss. She then continued on to become a NASA spokesperson helping to recruit and inspire space program participation. Cirque has created a collection of jewellery called Galaxy Goddess, and Fanfreluche has fashioned a fierce hat for this amazing woman.
